If you’re looking for a really quick way to help students learn to spell their name, you’re in the right spot! These simple name songs for kids make it surprisingly easy for them to learn the letters in their name… and their classmates’ names too!
There are tons of great ways to teach kids how to spell their names but I always love introducing activities by changing the lyrics to a popular tune and making a custom own name song.
You won’t believe how fast children learn their spelling!
Picking the Tune
The tune that works best for each child’s name really depends on the number of letters it has.
My oldest son has five letters in his name so we changed the words to the popular song “BINGO” and spelled his name instead.
The classic “Happy Birthday to You” tune is perfect for three letter names!
To help you get started, I recorded some videos demonstrating tunes that work for names with three to seven letters a couple years back.
Just scroll down to the number you need and start singing. Have fun!
