Great Videos for Teaching Beginner Phonics by Maple Leaf Hashima

Last week I wrote about the excellent CVC videos by Maple Leaf Hashima, one of my favorite YouTube channels for EFL. I neglected to mention their first rate alphabet vocabulary series which I have been using to supplement my lessons when I teach beginner phonics. Each of the 26 videos teaches the sound of a letter in the alphabet and several vocabulary words that start with that letter, repeating them a bit faster for emphasis. They’re great practice for those times when the kids are sick of listening to the teacher but love engaging with a non corporeal voice on screen.

There are lots of videos that do the same thing, but the ones made by Maple Leaf Hashima are by far the best. Check out these ones below or take a look at the entire playlist.
