Maths songs/ stories

Discussion in 'Primary' started by chocolatechip, Jan 5, 2011.

  1. Hi
    I have searched in vain for a good song which involves counting in twos. I would also like to use stories in Maths lessons - I'd be grateful for suggestions.
    Thanks

  3. 'Number Fun' songs are good http://www.numberfun.co.uk/
    Not got many stories, remember doing The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch one year with ks1 think it was maths related.
    Have a look at the BBC's class clips too - lots for KS1 maths
     
  4. Thanks. Number fun looks like it could be just what I need.

    My class love this:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GTYxfltyPgg
    It is a rap involving counting in 2's, 5's and 10's. They can count very confidently now, the only downside being that they do it with an American accent!
     
  6. Tom thumbs musical Maths is good. Uses number and lots of Maths vocab too.
    Simple songs to known tunes
     
  7. This Book is fun with great pictures:
    Counting on Frank

  8. Thanks for the replies - lots of good ideas.
