Counting songs are fun and catchy, they help you children remember number names and number orders, counting forwards and backwards. They have rhyme, rhythm and repetition which supports the memorisation of the numbers. The objects in the song help form a concept of number sense which they can see clearly. When the 10 green bottles goes to 9, then 8 and down to one children are able to visualise the numbers.
Here are a few of the top favourites at Number Tots:
5 little ducks
5 current buns
5 little monkeys
10 green bottles
It always helps to have objects to support the songs and how cute are these ones which a friend's mum made us!
