Rounding Poem

Find the number in it's spot.

Go next door and see what you've got.

5 or more, raise the score.

4 or less, let it rest.

All the numbers to the right,

run to zero in a freight.


Odd and Even Poem

1, 3, 5, 7, 9

Odd numbers like Frankenstein.

0, 2, 4, 6, 8

Even Steven thinks you're great!

6 and 7 are sad and blue

they make the number 42. 


7 and 7 are doing fine,

they make the number 49. 


I ate and I ate till I got sick on the floor,

8 X 8 is 64. 


4 and 4 got in a car...

but they had to be 16 to drive. 



6 x 6, magic tricks




Eight times four is thirty-two,

thirty-two, thirty-two!

Eight times four is thirty-two, 

and now you know it's true! 

(Mary had a little lamb tune.)


We're telling time!
