Here is a way that my chapter came up with learning the symbols and the alphabet. You might have already heard it this way, but here's a suggestion!

Alpha A
Beta B
Gamma r (not exactly like the letter, but its close lol)
Delta (a Triangle, but looks like an A)

So the first 4 are A Bra

Epsilon E
Zeta Z
Eta H
Theta 0 (with that thing in the middle of it)

These spell EZ HO

So, so far we have A bra, and ez ho, for the first 8 letters

Iota I
Kappa K
Lambda A (without the line in the middle, but you know!)
Mu M

These spell I KAM

Nu N
Xi E (its not an E but we have to improvise)
Omicron O

These letters look like NEON like the car.

Rho P
Sigma E (it has those curves on it)
Tau T
Upsilon Y (looks like a Y though, but its not)

This spells PETY


And these are pretty hard so we couldn't come up with anything.

So we have
ABra~~~~Alpha Beta Gamma Delta
EZHo~~~~Epsilon Zeta Eta Theta
IKam~~~~Iota Kappa Lambda Mu
NEOII~~~~Nu Xi Omicron Pi
PETY~~~~Rho Sigma Tau Upsilon

It sounds really confusing on here, but i swear its really not, just look at the alphabet and break it up. This is how I was taught.. Toodles!

There is a Greek letter song (like the regular alphabet song) that makes learning the names easy. Unfortunately, that's hard to communicate over email, and I can't sing to save my life anyway. You maybe you could find another Greek org locally that knows it.

We would do this thing where the sisters sat in a circle and had to go around in turn. They had to say the letter that came next, and sometimes draw it, depending on whether we were working on the names or shapes.

greek alphabet

hiya, i'm the nmc for HB and we use a game called the bomb. the symbols for the alphabet are put on small squares of paper and spread out on the floor. each new member has a chance to 'disarm' the bomb by gathering the cards up one by one in order. if you go out of order, the bomb explodes (aka your turn is over) and the quickest person to go in the correct order disarms the bomb and gets a prize (candy, an adpi mug, stuffed lion, etc) the girls go over the alphabet by singing it and playing for practice throughout alpha ed and by the end of the last session, play for the prize. (everyone gets candy if they aren't the quickest)

also, the girls can use the same game for other things that need memorized in order
hope this helps!

Alphabet Song

Sorry to crash your board but we actually have a really cool alphabet song that's way cool. It's really catchy. It was recorded at the last National Assembly by brothers across the nation. If you're interested PM me and I'll burn you a copy on CD.

Greek Alphabet Song

Greek Alphabet Song by Keith Petrower:

(Sung to the tune of the ABC song.)

DELTA, EPSILON, hey hey hey!

Then theres KAPPA and LAMBDA

MU and NU and XI (x-i)
OMICRON and then theres PI

RHO and SIGMA and TAU, too
UPSILON, it starts with U

PHI and CHI and PSI are fun
OMEGA and then you're done

Learn all that and then you're set
Thats the whole Greek alphabet

It's a shame that it's not on the latest CD, because I know two different versions of the song. When we had All-Greek Day, our campus used our one version.

If you'd like to hear it, I could probably sing it to you. PM me, if you'd like.
