A Math Song

                      One Leprechaun went out to play
                   Over the rainbow on St. Patrick’s Day
                    Golden coins fell, clink, clink, clink
                     How many coins fell, do you think?
This is a number guessing game.  We took turns dropping the coins and guessing how many fell.  The lower number groups were easier to guess but as the amount of coins grew the children still guessed either small numbers or really big numbers.

Here’s a video after we did the song a few times.

 Sometimes I feel like I'm alone with the children at circle time.  I have a few parents that will always sing and I thank them for being wonderful role models for their children.  This video shows one example of how I encouraged the grown ups to take part.
