Maths Makes Sense

You could help your child practise their number formation with the MMS songs.
 

Forming Numbers

 

Sing to the tune of Skip to my Lou.

 


Actions

 

Practise forming all numbers standing up, so children can use their forefinger and whole arm to ‘write’

the number in the air.

 

Progress to the smaller movements required to write on the page.

 

Remember, children will use you as a mirror, so ensure all children

are forming the numbers correctly.

 

Lyrics

 

From the top, go all the way round (three times)

 

To make the number zero.

 

Go straight down and that is all (three times)

 

To make the number one.

 

Swing it round and then go right (three times)

 

To make the number two.

 

Swing it round and then once more (three times)

 

To make the number three.

 

Down, slide, cut in half (three times)

 

To make the number four.

 

Down, round, put on a hat (three times)

 

To make the number five.

 

Come on down and make a curl (three times)

 

To make the number six.

 

 

Slide to the right and slant on down (three times)

 

To make the number seven.

 

Make an S and go straight home (three times)

 

To make the number eight.

 

Make a loop and come straight down

(three times)

 

To make the number nine.
