ZYXs, an Illustrated Song

Posted on: August 11, 2014

It is fun to sing the ABC Song backwards, the ZYXs, and finish it off with “Next time let’s all go to Texas.”  The kids (and adults) always laugh!

It’s fun to “Start at the very beginning” (or the very ending) and sing the ZYX’s at “Sing Books with Emily” gatherings.

Addendum, March 2011

After a conversation with the wonderful teacher Ms. Antil about using the American Sign Language Alphabet to help kids learn their ABCs and using the hand signs as an interesting activity I made poster cards to help kids learn their American Sign Language Alphabet with ABC and ZYX poster cards:

ZYXs WITH ASL ALPHABET SIGNS AND GUITAR CHORDS

This song sheet for the ZYXs has a lot going for it, embodying much history and information.  It’s fun to explore something seemingly simple which opens many doors!

I first heard Ralph Covert sing the ZYX’s on his album “Ralph’s World,” at the end of the ABC song, Track 14.

Addendum: 4/30/2012

I think it’s fun to tell the kids that, “We’re going to start at the very ending…” and then after we sing the ZYXs, I say, “OK, now we’re going to sing the ZYXs backwards. Can anyone tell me what that is?” And someone will say, “The ABCs” and they’ll think that is funny. I love it every time!
