There are several counting songs published in contemporary America for young children to learn number counting, in particular, from one to ten. I have spent some time studying it! Today I have redone it and share the rephrased version to fit my themes of math, hope, poetry, and natural and healthy living in this blog. I hope that you enjoy it.
Singing-along this song is a good way to renew your energy, ponder about the funny side of math, and reduce road rages caused by drunk driving!
Counting Poetry (Part I):
1 2 3 4 5, you deserve to live a healthy life,
6 7 8 9 10, let your love erase all the pain.
Why do you always have hope?
Because YEAH is better than NOPE.
Why do you want to help me?
You will figure it out someday!
1 2 3 4 5, let’s learn how to survive,
6 7 8 9 10, keep going and you can win!
I am wondering how do you know?
Because it is true, I can tell!
Do I need to pay a fee?
Nope, that you learn your lessons is the key!
1 2 3 4 5, if drunk, don’t drive,
6 7 8 9 10, these are tips to follow, laws to learn!
Why are you mentioning this though?
Because it is important for you to know!
How does it make sense to me?
Since safety first, it is supposed to be!
(Stay Tuned, Part II to be continued….)
I find this link is very helpful for advanced students, such as high school students or college freshman, to fine tune their skills in solving some mathematical problems.
also this link has fine third grade math problems to solve:

You have a great idea here. When my kids were little, I would count how many steps it took to get across the sidewalk. It didn’t take long before they were walking faster to out count me.
yeah, counting song makes it easy to learn math basics, your way of teaching your kids are special in a different way, you integrated math into side-walking experiences, which makes math easier to digest.
counting figures or toes when bathing a toddler or a preschooler will help them remember numbers as well, they get tickled and giggled and have fun, forgetting about math itself.
I like this song and look forward to the second part.
In regards to the last link “drunk e-mailing”. I think they should have some sort of breathalyzer for the phone and texting. No math tests, for some reason mathematically I function better after a few drinks. The only difference is my coordination and my loose personal thoughts.
well understood, a small amount of drinking is good to your body, especially during winter season. Your are very talented on drawings and inspire others maybe because of your elegant habit on this.
the last link may not be very helpful, it is simply one of my experiences, discard it if you find it unrelated.
I love this song! I find your interest in the arts, juxtaposed with your interest in Math, well, interesting. Math can be an art, of sorts, I suppose.
I also admire your interest in living a healthy life, physically, emotionally and spiritually.
surprise, Julie! I am speechless!
i appreciate your compliments, glad that it is taken positively by you with open mind and kind heart.
when we combine math with things we do in life, everything becomes sense-making!
chuckles, lots of it, for your coming by today!
1GNnIu Excellent article, I will take note. Many thanks for the story!
