    1, 2, 3, & the numbers…

    Basic counting isn’t all that challenging, right? It’s when we get to the higher numbers that it feels like math.

    I like the flow of this song and that it incorporates the numbers with some vocab I know, and some verb constructions/conjugations I don’t. It’s short, it’s sweet. Let’s sink our teeth into it and improve our pronunciation of the numbers with help from this little jingle.

    This one makes me think of the eenie, meenie, minie, mo song in French. I know thye have one because I heard my teacher say it the other day I’ll have to find that one next.

    What did you think? What song should we do next?
