This Letter G Song is one of a series of guruparents phonics songs.
The song introduces the letter sound by featuring 12 words beginning with the letter g 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 G for someone who is learning English.
Some kids have trouble with this letter. Its usage is a good example of why English is quite a tricky language: instead of just having its familiar ‘g is for gorilla’ sound, ‘g’ also regularly has a ‘g is for giraffe’ sound.
The best way for a new reader to learn how to pronounce ‘g’ is to read lots and lots of books – and the best way to get them to do this is to inspire a love of reading. We hope this song helps you in its own little way in this endeavor!
Letter G Song Lyrics
G is for gorilla – its arms are so thick
G is for glue – when we need things to stick
G is for garlic – it has a strong smell
G is for giddy – I don’t feel very well
G is for grapes – so tasty to eat
G is for gravy – to put on your meat
G is for game – we play it for fun
G is for gas – it makes our cars run
G is for gale – a really strong wind
G is for goat – it will eat anything
G is for garbage – we throw it away
G is for grow – getting bigger each day
