Ten Toes – Time To Learn Number 10

Ten Toes – Time To Learn Number 10 1

Sing and Learn the Actions!

Lyrics

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

Numbers 1 to 10 Gus would love to teach,
while he’s having fun playing at the beach.
Before we start counting over again,
it’s time to learn our number ten.

Gus are your ten toes holding on tight,
to your surfboard with all their might?
Yahoo, riding the waves is so much fun.
It’s cool to hang ten, in the bright warm sun, oh yeah!
So your toes better hold on tight with all their might.
It’s cool to hang ten, in the bright warm sun, oh yeah!
So your toes better hold on tight with all their might.
So your toes better hold on tight with all their might.

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1

We now know our numbers from 1 to 10.
It’s no problem to count again and again!
Can you believe it? We’ve come to the end.
I loved learning numbers with you my friend!

Activities

  • Intro: When you hear the numbers show your fingers to count along.
  • Divide the children into two groups. Allocate a sound source e.g. use rhythm sticks, tap the floor or desk, play a drum or back of a bucket slap thighs etc.
  • One group plays along to the beat (the steady pulse) of the song and the other group plays to the rhythm of the song (short and long sounds that fit over an underlying beat).
  • Play the song again and children swap so they can feel the difference between the beat and the rhythm.
