Number Rhymes and Songs

Click for Writing for ChildrenTom Thumb's Musical Maths
by Helen McGregor     
(A&C Black)
The songs and chants in this book provide a wonderful way to encourage children both mathematically and musically. They fit well into odd moments in the day as well as into structured numeracy sessions and are all set to well known tunes so you don't need to be a musician to use them. The range of maths skills covered is ideal for use with Key Stage 1 and there are ideas for extending the maths and for further music work. Our reviewer loved this and so did her class of mixed Year 1 and Reception children. A must for early years teachers.
