We are learning this Counting Rap at the moment.

It will help us when we start to learn our multiplication tables.

Counting Cadence

Based on the Counting Cadence song from
the Dr. Jean Feldman Kiss Your Brain CD

We’re the best, we’re number one.
Now let’s have some counting fun.
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12

We are smart, we’re really cool.
Come on and let’s count by twos.
2 4 6 8 10 12 14 16 18 20 22 24

We are rockin’ you can see.
All together count by threes.
3 6 9 12 15 18 21 24 27 30 33 36

We’ve got the beat&we know more.
Everybody count by fours.
4 8 12 16 20 24 28 32 36 40 44 48

We can count and we’re alive.
Now let’s try and count by fives.
5 10 15 20 25 30 35 40 45 50 55 60

Skip counting is a kick.
You can do it-count by six.6 12 18 24 30 36 42 48 54 60 66 72

We’re on a roll-our brains are revvin’. Everybody count by seven.
7 14 21 28 35 42 49 56 63 70 77 84

We’re fantastic-doing great.
Come on now and count by eight.
8 16 24 32 40 48 56 64 72 80 88 96

Lookin’ good and counting fine.
Now it’s time to count by nine.
9 18 27 36 45 54 63 72 81 90 99 108

Skip count, skip count once again.
One more time and count by ten.
10 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 90 100 110 120

We added the following verses:

We can count be six, we can count by seven. We can even count by eleven.

11, 22, 33, 44, 55, 66, 77, 88, 99, 110, 121, 132.

We can’t think of anything that rhymes with twelve. Let’s finish this rap and count by twelve.

12, 24, 36, 48, 60, 72, 84, 96, 108, 120, 132, 144.

We are super, yes we are. Look out world, here comes a star!

Great news about learning multiplication tables from @magicalmaths

As the school year begins children in 3rd Class

will begin ‘climbing the table mountain’

and children in 4th will begin revising

the multiplication tables they learned in 3rd.

 

Good news from @magicalmaths who

shared this encouraging video on Twitter.

When I tell you the video is called

“How to Easily Memorize the Multiplication Table”

hopefully you will feel encouraged.

 

Scroll down this link and click on the You Tube video

by Professor Arthur Benjamin.

He cleverly reduces 100 number facts

of multiplication tables 1-10,

to just three.

Now, isn’t that good news !
