A Penny Is One Cent A penny is one cent (stamp your foot) A nickel is five (slap your thigh) A dime is ten cents (clap your hands) A quarter twentyfive (snap fingers over your head). How many cents have I on this try? The Penny See the shiny penny, brown as it can be, Showing Abe Lincoln for all of us to see. He had a bushy beard and a tall black hat. A penny's worth one cent. How about that? The Nickel Thomas Jefferson will be found On a nickel, shiny, smooth, and round. His home, Monticello, is on the other side. A nickel is worth five cents. Say it with pride.

I'll be counting to one hundred, It will take about a year! Because I've never seen one hundred, But it's HUGE, that's what I hear!
I'll be nine when I start counting, In a year I'll reach the end. I'll just count and count some more and
When I'm done I will be ten!
So, I'm counting to one hundred In a voice that's loud and clear. Now I'm half way to one hundred,
And it didn't take a year!
I'm not sure where I got these math poems...I think they were on one of my webrings.
Length is Fun
12, 12, 12 Inches make a foot. Measure short things with the foot. Length is so much fun.
3, 3, 3 Feet are in a yard. Measure long things with a yard. Length is so much fun.
Inch, inch, inch Inches are in yards. Thirtysix, thirtysix Inches make a yard.
Time
What time is it? What time is it? Do you know? Do you know? The short hand tells the hour. The long hand tells the minute. Count by 5’s, Count by 5’s.

Mathematics
We just know what we’ve been told Mathematics is worth its weight in gold Studying numbers here and there Solving problems everywhere.
Sound off…addition! Sound off…subtraction! Sound off… multiplication! Sound off…division!
Sorting numbers is our thing Finding symmetry is our game Finding paremeter and area is easy All because of you and me!
Sound off…strategies Sound off…problem solving Sound off…reading numbers Sound off…one, two, three, four….LET’S GO!!!
Problem Solving
There’s a math problem Written on a sheet I can work it out It’s not such a feat First I read it twice find out what it asks Double underline the info It’s an easy task Next I look for clues Underline them once Choose a strategy Sometimes you have to hunt
Now I work it out I can draw a chart I will show my work This is quite an art Mark your answers clear Check over your facts Make sure they are right Be sure it is intact
Mathematics Bugaloo
I’m a mathematician and I’m here to say I do mathematics everyday. Sometimes I just use paper Sometimes I use my head Or maybe a drawing will do instead. Problem solving, number sense, Figuring out what to do Doing the mathematics Bugaloo. First, I study the problem To get a clue Just what’s the problem asking me to do? Next I choose a strategy Which one shall I try? Once I have decided That strategy I apply.
Then I work on problem showing All the steps too, Last I check my answer, Bugaloo.
Odd and Even
If you are an even number You always have a pair So if you look around Your buddy will always be there But ... If you are an odd number There's always a lonely one He looks around to find his buddy But he's the only one. Marg Wadsworth
The Faces Of The Clock
The Big Hand is busy But the Small Hand has power. The large one counts the minutes. But the Little One names the hour. When both Hands stand at the top together, It's sure to be Twelve O'clock. But whether That's twelve at noon or twelve at night Depends on if it's dark or light.
Make a Ten
Make a ten. Make a ten.
We know ways to make a ten.
9+1 and 8+2;
They have sums of ten. It's true.
7+3 and 6+4;
Do you know there are two more?
5+5 and 0+10;
Now let's say them all again!
