Because language arts instruction is so important and seems to eat up so much time, I find that it is all the more crucial to make sure that my math instruction is effective and is delivered efficiently. I use math manipulatives in small groups daily to develop math concepts and understandings, and then use the songs from the CD to help reinforce and review these math concepts at other times of the day as well. The songs on the Musical Math CD and DVD are particularly helpful in reviewing the academic vocabulary associated with these math concepts.

For example, in the AAB pattern song, they sing, “Chug, chug, caboose! Chug, chug, caboose! Duck, duck, goose! Duck, duck, goose!” all with movements for each one. It’s definitely a favorite activity!

The songs help link the concrete math concepts that we are learning with the abstract math vocabulary that they must also learn. Once they have a solid label for each concept in their heads and can build their own examples of these patterns, true learning has taken place. We will work on a concept such as patterning for several weeks, and sing the songs on and off again during the actual math lessons, during transition times, or whenever the kids need a chance to get up and move a little to get those wiggles out!

Musical Math also has songs like this for sorting, comparing sets (more, less, and equal), coin recognition, skip counting, counting to 100, addition, and subtraction. But no matter what the concept, my basic lesson plan is to first introduce the concept whole group with magnetic manipulatives, sing the song, and then work on the concept in small groups with manipulatives. After that, if the skill must be transferred to paper, then we work on that, too. Meanwhile, we keep reviewing the songs as often as time will permit. Hopefully, when the children hear the songs, they will be visualizing their experiences with the manipulatives in their heads, and connecting this learning to the math vocabulary that the song is about.

This fun set of Addition worksheets features all the great Counting Creatures artwork with progressively difficult sums from 4 to 12. Each of the worksheet sets are fun to do and many include opportunities to draw, count and color, to help polish their primary math skills. These worksheets help make math FUN!
Includes 54 pages: 18 worksheet pages in each set

These worksheets are intended to help children follow up and practice their newly formed subtraction skills. Most of the worksheets have only five or six equations on them, since children that are just learning are typically a bit slow at completing them. Also, you will notice that the majority of the worksheets have spaces for the children to draw pictures to help them find the answers. For example, there may be a large box with the equation “4 - 3 = __” in it. In this case, the children are taught to draw four things, (usually circles,) and then cross out three of them. Then they count the ones that are left, and write the answer in the box.
Includes 46 pages: 16 pages in Set 1, and 15 pages in each Set 2 & 3

It's always important to test your device before you make your rental purchase through Vimeo, as we don't have the ability to refund purchases if your device is unsupported or if you have a poor or inconsistent internet connection. Heidi discovered this when she tried to use the videos on her school computer, only to realize the Window's Internet Explorer browser was outdated, and she had to call the district for an update. An easy test is to verify that the movie "trailer" plays well on your device or computer, if it does, you should not have a problem with purchasing a movie.
