    There is a great book called "Teaching Phonics Through Song". I think it is put out by Frank Schaffer. It takes all the phonics rules and puts them to familiar tunes for the students to learn. It also includes worksheets and suggestions for lessons etc. For example, short vowels are sung to the tune of Are You Sleeping? (Farajaka???) So the short "a" verser goes like this: Where is short "a"? Where is short "a"?
    Here I am. Here I am. I am in a hat rack, cracker jacks and fat cats."a,a,a" "a,a,a" They are singing the short a sound for the last line. My kids love it!
