I found this song on you tube to help my students keep their interest during our handwriting instruction. I told them that I had always wanted to learn how to sing the alphabet backwards. (Secretly, I'm a little embarrassed that I don't already know how. I do teach first grade you know!) They have really enjoyed it. I play it each Monday before we move on to the nitty gritty of correct pencil grip and letter formation. I am amazed at how quickly they have picked it up.
