After we released “The Skip Counting by 3 Song”, we pretty much decided to go on a skip counting roll, which resulted in our new song, “The Skip Counting by 2 Song.” Why we decided to start with 3 instead of 2 is anyone’s guess–LOL. I guess that’s just how inspiration will hit you sometimes. At any rate, enjoy the song, and feel free to share!
Look for more skip counting tunes in the near future!
O.k., I know that I keep saying that each song is our most fun song yet, BUT this one really, really was, and you will be able to see that if you listen to the song all the way to the end. The kids got REALLY, REALLY into the creative process on this one, and when Phillip said that he wanted to publish the song with their antics at the end of it; I shivered first, then I relaxed and realized how fun it would be for kids to hear children’s voices being silly at the end of the song. After all, we are SILLY School Songs.
So take a listen, hopefully your children will love it and want to hear it again and again and most hopefully, they will quickly learn to count by threes by listening to this little skip counting ditty.
This song is geared toward 1st grade through 3rd grade. As with all of our songs, you can use them at any grade level necessary to introduce or review a concept.
This song was also one that our girls became heavily involved in with us. Even a portion of the lyrics go to them. Not because we couldn’t think of anything, but I literally live in a house full of artists and at one point, ALL of us were chiming in at the same time about what should be said next. It was so funny and a lot of fun! I am the teacher, they are all artistically inclined in various ways and cannot help themselves but to create. I love it!
We hope you enjoy this “family masterpiece.” My 9 year old asked why I called it a masterpiece. I do so, because we each all had a significant part and in my humblest opinion, once we put all of the pieces together, they fit perfectly. To me, that is a masterpiece.
Alright, after a couple of weeks in the “lab”, we are now ready to present the Seven Continents Song! This song is a fun and easy-to-remember way to memorize the seven continents, along with some cool little trivia facts thrown in for good measure. Hope you enjoy it!
