Teaching phonics with poems and pop songs

Have you ever thought of teaching reading and writing skills through poems and pop songs? Well, in yesterday’s synthetic phonics training session we saw how using original texts like these can help teachers create motivating contexts for meaningful learning. You could help your pupils to pronounce and spell the /ng/ sound correctly with Spike Milligan’s ‘Ning Nang Nong‘.  Or why not teach the alternative spellings of the /ie/ sound with Rihanna’s ‘Diamonds‘? How many words can your pupils hear that have that sound? Watch the video with the lyrics to correct the spelling. Which is the most common grapheme for that sound?

Please tell us if you try any of these activities in class and also if you know any other songs or poems that are good for teaching phonics sounds or spelling patterns.
