This letter F song is one of a series of guruparents phonics songs.
The song introduces the letter sound by featuring 12 words beginning with the letter f 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 F for someone who is learning English.
The letter f is one of the easier letters in the English language as it can almost always be relied upon to be pronounced the same way (for example, the ‘f’ sound in ‘fish’).
Funnily enough, one of the few exceptions to this comes in one of the most common and simple words of all — ‘of’, which is of course pronounced as if it were ‘ov’.
By the way, if you read something printed before the 19th century it may seem as if the letter f was used much more frequently back then.
However, it was just the way that the lower case ‘s’ used to be written when it appeared at the start or the middle of a word.
Too much confusion between ‘f’ and ‘s’ was occurring, so just over 200 years ago the ‘s’ was changed to always appear as it does today.
