Have you noticed that most of the early literacy songs for children focus on one letter representing one sound - <a> is for ant and so on? Not only does this reinforce misinformation, the opportunity to teach about the morphemic structure of words is lost when all the focus is on letter-sound links. I have started to create some songs and videos that I hope will be helpful in your journey of orthographic inquiry.
In this song, morphemes, the meaning-based building blocks of words, are explained. The tune, The Wheels on the Bus, will be familiar to most younger learners. My daughter Georgie is singing the song. Stay tuned for more!
Remember when you are showing your students the morphemes in words, using these visual cues with your hands really helps make the structure explicit. See the post Using visual cues to indicate morphemic structure for more details.
