Count From 1 To 10 Twenty different Ways (1-5)

Counting from 1 to 10 is very important to children’  initial learning about mathematical concepts. Recall on Barney And Friends of PBS , they count from 1 to 10 with two numbers connected at a time.  I revised the WORDINGS and share the first five (5) different ways of doing it, enjoy!



1, 2, go to the zoo,

3, 4, shop at the store,

5, 6, build with bricks,

7, 8, sugar is sweet.

9, 10, buy me a pen.


1, 2, Winnie the pooh,

3, 4, eat with a paw,

5, 6, search for beehives,

7, 8, honey tastes great,

9, 10, hungry again.


1, 2, an owl says hoot,

3, 4, tigers roar,

5, 6, a fox hides in a box,

7, 8, a bird says tweet,

9, 10, stay in the den.


1, 2, cows say moo,

3, 4, two walls make a hall,

5, 6, chew the grass,

7, 8, breed in high rate,

9, 10, big fat hen.


1, 2, ghosts say boo,

3, 4, stop the snore,

5, 6, do more tricks,

7, 8, juggle one more plate,

9, 10, birds love to sing.


Today’s Question for YOU:

How do you teach your kids to count? If you have no children yet, how did you learn about numbers when you were young? Do you enjoy counting at all?

Thank YOU for the time, Happy Monday!

  1. We sing counting songs. 1, 2, buckle my shoe, 3, 4, shut the door etc.

    And sometimes we just count. My son loves the Abacus anyway. He can go to one hundred now at age four.

    Baby girl at 2 is doing 30 , sometimes she mixes up the 20s.

    It’s fun. I love it and I teach them and they love it too. I’ll even say. Please bring me two slices of cheese. or 6 grapes etc. That way they get to count. It’s fun!

    1. Hello,

      You are very creative in teaching your kids to do math counting, babies are capable of almost everything. Using something they eat or use is very effective.

      Thank you for stopping by. 🙂

  2. I taught my daughter to count by using clothes pegs at first then flash cards not long after. Today she is on the honour roll at school and has the highest mathematics score (100% ) from out of all classes in her grade level. I’m so proud of her. 🙂

    1. Dear Val:

      WOW 🙂 :).

      It is a thrill to hear that your precious daughter is doing perfectly well in math.
      And you have played a key role in her education.

      like mother,
      like daughter,
      Way to go, both of you :)!

  3. My son (almost 3) is a huge fan of the version that ends with Big Red Hen (which must be shouted as loud as possible).

    Thanks for the suggestions. We could definitely use a little variety in our house.

    1. Dear K:

      I am excited to hear from you, please feel free to take a look at other postings, such as dog Haiku, Cat Haiku, Rabbit Haiku, Snow and Ice- Storm Haiku, those are all FUN :).

      I appreciate your time here
      take care and sweet dreams.

  4. I’m too old to remember that far back but I do remember using number cards that were like playing cards, and we used to turn them over to reveal the numbers. If that makes any sense at all. 🙂

    1. Good evening, Paul Andrew:

      It makes a lot of sense.
      Glad to see you again:)

      I will add you to my favorite poet lists which was published on January 6, 2010,

      If you have a dog, please feel free to comment on January 8, 2010 post titled as “Dogs Enjoy Playing A Toy With A boy.” to be added to the list.

      Thank You for Your time.

      Enjoy An Extraordinary Evening! 🙂

  5. My 22-month-old is still learning… often he will count, “One, two, four, six, GO!” I like the ideas in your comments, I will have to borrow them.

    1. Good evening, Sunny:

      I am happy that you wanted a piece of me :).
      Please feel free to copy and paste or print anything that might useful your family or relative ‘s learning.

      Sweet Dreams.:)

  6. I taught my boys and grandchildren to count at every opportunity – up and down stairs, what they had on their dinner plate, their toys etc etc. You’re right it’s easy if you make it fun.

    Thanks for stopping by my place and taking the time to comment. 🙂

    1. Great,

      If you have more than one kids, younger one usually learn from the older one automatically, parents put greater stress on the oldest kid in general.

      Thank you for flying by.
      Have A Awesome Day :).

  7. I am sure you have spent some time to give this good post to us. I do not know how to thank you for providing to us.

  8. The analysis sited is indisputable. I will need to say that tom must examine his details and re-think his conclusion. The authorites have spoken and also rest of would need to respect that. Thanks for the properly laid out into.

  9. Super-Duper site! I am loving it!! Will come back again – taking you feeds also, Thanks.
