WACKY WORD SONGS! is an educational series of 40 song-based episodes about language related concepts. Performed by “Zoey” (The Wacky Word Show!), every song is a playful engagement in literacy, language, and communication. Related to the Ontario language curriculum, the songs inspire kids to have fun with words and language while singing along. Learning is supported by clear text, situational storytelling, engaging and explanative visuals, and memorable songs.
Collection includes 40 songs, approx. 2 minutes each:
- The Mighty Squiggle - An apostrophe is so mighty it can replace letters in some of your favourite words!

- The Active Snail - We use verbs all the time, even when it looks like we’re not doing much at all.
- Opposite World - Antonyms are awesome... the opposite of boring.
- Chop It Up - Words can be split into beats just like music. The beats in words are called syllables.
- Mind How You Go - We use words called adverbs to describe how we’re doing things.
- Zoey with a Zed - You can usually find Zoey at the end of a list in alphabetical order, because she’s Zoey with a zed!

- Wild and Wacky - Zoey wrote this bouncy, bubbly song about adjectives!
- The Interjector - Interjections are useful words, but sometimes they interrupt and are a little bit rude.
- Compound Words - You can make one word out of two. They’re called compound words.
- As Easy as A.B.C. - Time to sing like a bird about similes with Zoey!

- Fabulous, Fantastic, Phenomenal - Using synonyms helps Zoey write better stories and songs.
- How the Upper Case Lives - Capital letters are a little snobby, but they are really important.
- The Singular Plural Blues - Why do words like jeans, have an “S” at the end while only referring to one pair of something.

- Every Sentence Has To End - Even though we don’t read punctuation out loud, we have to use it at the end of sentences.
- Comma Commotion - Commas can really change the meaning of a sentence. Find out how with Zoey’s new song!

- Great, Greater, Greatest - Some adjectives, like the word small, can be turned into whole new words when we want to describe how things compare to each other.
