Common Core Math with Miss Jenny CD
Common Core is all the buzz...but what about the students (and parents!) who are confused by the new way of doing math? These cds put the concepts to music to help you remember. 38 songs at first grade and 30 songs at the kindergarten level help children remember counting, operations in base ten (adding & subtracting), measurement and data. Contained in the cd folder are instructions for downloading a free booklet from the publisher website with all of the lyrics to the songs in a kid-friendly format. The lyric pages are blackline masters that allow the student to color or write on them like worksheets as they sing and listen to the songs. For example, at the 1st grade level, the tune to Miss Mary Mack accompanies words that help children do simple addition using little ducks on the page with the words, "Miss Mary Mack, Mack, Mack, all dressed in black, black, black, She saw 1 duck, duck, duck, and it said, "Quack, quack, quack."Then, she saw 3 more ducks going, "Quack, quack, quack."1 duck plus 3, 3, 3 ... How many ducks is that?" You could have children circle, underline or color the ducks to reinforce what is being taught. There are notes for the parent/teacher at the end of the lyric pages that shows which standards are met by each song.
Not everyone needs or likes common core, but if you are in a state where it is required these Miss Jenny audio cds can prove invaluable for your young learners. ~ Donna
