This is to Linda for Linda who asked about songs to do
with maths or English, Im not sure how the system works in the states
so I don't know what age 1st grade children are but here are a few
songs that might help:
I finger tap tap tap
point to the ceiling point to the floor and put them in your lap
(you go up to any number with this song)
I finger 1 thumb keep moving
1 finger 1 thumb keep moving
1 finger 1 thumb keep moving we'll all be happy and gay
1 finger 1 thumb 1 arm keep moving
1 finger 1 thumb 1 arm 1 leg keep moving
1 finger 1 thumb 1 arm 1 leg 1 nod of the head keep moving
1 finger 1 thumb 1 arm 1 leg 1 nod of the head stand up sit down keep
you cna stop after each movment and ask the children how many parts of
the body they are moving and how many they will be moving in the next
Hop this helps in some way.

Click here for that rhyme.
I was searching for websites with the search term "rebus" and happened
upon Enchanted Learning. The reason for the search was to locate
educational resources compatible with a unique whole brain beginning
reader program that is featured on our website. Step 1 of this program
implements a rebus-style format to jumpstart and transition readers
into actual book "page" reading.
The Enchanted Learning Rebus Rhymes section is very clever and
charming. I have fond memories of learning to read, in part, reading
the popular Highlights Magazine rebus page.

To Ms. Mills from Benson, AZ who requested the lyrics to
"Take Me Out to the Ball Game". The lyrics are as follows:
Take me out to the ball game,
Take me out to the crowd.
Buy me some peanuts and crackerjacks,
I don't care if I ever get back.
For it's root, root root for the home team,
If they don't win it's a shame!
For it's one, two, three strikes you're out,
At the old ball game!
Hope that helps....
