This letter Q song is one of a series of guruparents phonics songs.
The song introduces the letter sound by featuring 12 words beginning with the letter q 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 q for someone who is learning English.
The letter ‘q’ almost always appears in front of a ‘u’ and is usually pronounced with a ‘kw’ sound. On rare occasions it is pronounced with a ‘k’ sound – for example in ‘quay’ and ‘plaque’ or a ‘ky’ sound – as in ‘queue’.
‘Q’ is the second most uncommonly used letter in the alphabet – only ‘z’ is less common. In fact if you studied a piece of English you would typically find that fewer than one in a thousand letters was a ‘q’.

Q is for quarrel – when people disagree
Q is for quick – to move with lots of speed
Q is for queen – she wears a great big crown
Q is for quiet – shh! Let’s not make a sound
Q is for quill – an old fashioned type of pen
Q is for question – like what, why, where or when
Q is for quadruplets – instead of two there’s four
Q is for quintuplets – like quads but with one more!

Q is for quit – when it’s time to stop
