Perimeter, perimeter goes round and round - add up all the sides and write your answer down (yo)
-- We added the little "yo" at the end to really make it a little rap.. The kids LOVE this - remember it - and can apply it -- after teaching it, I have never heard "what is perimeter??"
I also 2nd the cheez-its or use crackers for area... some kids will call me over and say is area counting the crackers? So they really remember these hands-on concrete experiences...
