ABC Learning Videos
Learning the alphabet is the first thing kids are taught when they begin formal schooling. They use the alphabet to learn how to read and write, of course! These ABC learning videos will help make learning the alphabet fun for kids. Repetition, catchy tunes, and fun visual aids will give kids the tools they need to learn all of the letter names and sounds.
Letter Recognition Videos
Letter recognition is all about learning what each letter looks like. This should include both uppercase and lowercase letters. These ABC learning videos will teach kids how to recognize each letter. While watching the videos, kids will see the individual letters, along with their names. This will begin their letter recognition journey in a fun and engaging way.
1. ABC Letter Boxes
Learning the alphabet is fun with Blippi. In this ABC learning video, kids will get the chance to recognize each letter of the alphabet using letterboxes. Each box has an uppercase and lowercase letter and includes objects that start with that letter. The video uses a combination of visual aids, song, and pure fun to help teach kids the alphabet.
2. Meet the Letters
Repetition is key when it comes to letter recognition. It’s important that kids learn to recognize the individual characteristics of each letter. The more they see the letter and hear its name, the more likely they are to remember it. In this ABC learning video, each letter is shown on the screen, with a voice repeating its name. There is a lot of movement in this video, making it interesting for kids.
3. Learn the Alphabet
In order to learn the alphabet, it’s important to include visuals that will give each letter meaning. In this letter recognition video, kids will first see each letter and hear its name. After going through the letter names, the video then progresses to saying words that start with each letter. For example, it says that the letter V is for violin, vegetables, vulture, and van. Going through the alphabet multiple times and hearing many examples of each letter will help kids learn the alphabet quickly.
4. Alphabet Automaticity
Part of learning the alphabet is being able to independently name them. After practicing the letters, kids will need to be able to name the letters as they are flashed across the screen. In this video, kids will get the chance to practice this important mastery skill. Kids will sing along with the verse, then say the letters of the alphabet as they move across the screen. It’s fast-paced, so it’s important that kids have a basic understanding of the letters first.
5. Letter Recognition Practice
After learning all of the letters, it’s important that kids can demonstrate what they’ve learned. In this letter recognition video, the letters are shown one at a time, giving kids the chance to shout out the name of the letter. This can be done with individuals, small groups and even large groups. To make it a game, simply have two kids line up next to one another and see who can say the letter name first. Larger groups can make two or more teams and cycle through the players on each team. This is a wonderful way for kids to practice what they’ve learned in a fun way.
Letter Sounds ABC Videos
In addition to recognizing letter names, it’s also important that kids are able to match letter names with sounds. Phonics is an important part of learning the alphabet since this skill is what kids will use to begin reading. In these ABC learning videos, kids will see the letters and hear the sounds. These videos also match the sounds with a picture, giving a great visual reminder for what sound that letter makes.
1. Meet the Phonics
This video is a great way to teach kids letter sounds. In Meet the Phonics, kids will get the chance to see each letter in a fun cartoon. The theme matches the sound each letter makes, such a dinosaur theme for the letter D. The voice then repeats the letter sound and includes different words that start with that letter. Repetition, combined with fun visuals, makes this an excellent ABC learning video.
2. ABCD | Learn the ABCs
This ABC learning video helps kids learn the first few letters of the alphabet and the sounds they make. It uses repetition to help kids commit the sounds to memory. For example, for the letter B, the song sings “b-b-bee, b-b-bee” along with other words that start with b. Since the beginning sound is stressed, kids will start recognizing that beginning letter sound. Since it teaches the first few letters only, kids are given a manageable amount to learn, making it a great beginning video.
3. Learning Letter Sounds
Letter sounds are important when it comes to learning the alphabet. Kids will need to differentiate between letter sounds as they progress from knowing the alphabet to reading. In this ABC learning video, kids will sing along with each letter name and sounds. It includes great examples for each letter, teaching kids different words that start with that sounds. With the catchy tune, kids will quickly learn the letter sounds.
4. Phonic Song for Kindergarten
This phonics song will help teach kids all about letters and their sounds. Each letter is shown on the screen with an uppercase and lowercase letter. The song then goes on to sing about an object or item that starts with that letter sound. For example, for the letter B, it sings, “B is for baby … b-b-baby … b-b-baby. B, baby.” This type of repetition, along with the catchy tune, will help kids commit this information to memory so that they quickly master the letter sounds.
5. Phonics – Learn to Read

Alphabet Songs Videos
Songs are a catchy and fun way to learn the alphabet. These ABC learning videos use songs to help kids learn what they need to know about letter recognition and sounds. Since the songs use catchy tunes and fun music, kids will love dancing and singing along as they learn important alphabet skills.

After going through the letter names, it also goes through the sounds that each letter makes, teaching kids phonics in addition to letter recognition.
3. See It, Say It, Sign It
Getting kids to move when learning is a great way to help them remember important details. This ABC learning video uses songs and hand signs to help teach kids the alphabet.

By signing and singing the alphabet, kids are given one more tool that will help them recall each letter and what it means.
