This letter D song is one of a series of guruparents phonics songs.
The song introduces the letter sound by featuring 12 words beginning with the letter d sound, including some sight words.
Kids songs are a good way for a child to start to learn to read – and this one is set to a catchy rap tune, features lots of colorful pictures and has a simple rhyming pattern. It is also a good song to introduce the letter D for someone who is learning English.
Most of the time, ‘d’ makes its usual ‘d is for dog’ sound. It is worth noting though that sometimes ‘d’ has a ‘t’ sound — usually when it is paired with ‘e’ at the end of a word, (for example, ‘jumped’, or ‘ticked’).
Every now and then you’ll come across a word with ‘dw’ in it, such as ‘dwarf’, ‘dwindle’ and the name ‘Dwayne’. Some people find this hard sound to say – they end up virtually saying ‘duh-warf’ instead of ‘dwarf’. Can you make this sound perfectly? It is quite hard. Maybe your child will be better at it than you!
Letter D Song Lyrics
D is for duck – it likes to be wet
D is for dog – it makes a good pet
D is for diamond – with a sparkly gleam
D is for dictionary – for what words mean
D is for donkey – they say ‘ee-aw’
D is for doorknob – to open the door
D is for dolphins – they swim in the sea
D is for drink – when you’re feeling thirsty
D is for doctor – for when you are sick
D is for drums – that you hit with a stick
D is for doughnut – so sugary sweet
D is for dance – be quick on your feet!
And that was the letter D
