Number Formation

Around and round and round we go, when we get home we have a 0.

Start at the top and down we run, that's the way we make a 1.

Around and back on the railroad track, 2, 2, 2.

Around the tree and around the tree, that's the way we make a 3.

Down and over and down some more, that's the way we make a 4.

Down and around and a flag on high, that's the way we make a 5.

Around to a loop, number 6 rolls a hoop.

Across the sky and down from heaven, that's the way we make a 7.

Make an S and do not wait, when we get home we have an eight.

Make a loop and then a line, that's the way we make a 9.

This is on a Jack Hartmann CD. I can't remember if it is on Math In Motion or Math All Around Us. (I'm on fall break this week and can't check for you).

Here are the ones I use, there are lots of different ones out there

1- Number 1 is straight but fun
2- Around the track and come right back two, two (like choo choo)
3-Around the tree, Around the tree that is how we make a three
4-Down, across and down once more this is how we make a four.
5-Fat old five goes down and around, put a hat on his head and see what you've found.
6-Round like a loop six rolls a hoop.
7-Across the sky and down from heaven this is how we make a seven.
8-Make an "s" but do not wait go straight back up and make an eight.
9- A loop and a line that's number nine.

4 - Down and across and down once more. Now I've made the number four
