Number Poems

I have had many requests for these poems over the year.  There are many versions out there that are similar.  These are the poems that I use in class to help teach the children number recognition and formation. 
 
 
0...Around, around, around you go.  That's the way to make zero!
1...Pull straight down just for fun.  This is how you make a one!
2...Around and back on a railroad track is two.  Twooo! Twooo!
3...Around a tree, around a tree, this is how you make a three!
4...Down, across, and down some more.  That's the way to make a four!
5...A back that's flat, a tummy that's fat, then you put on the hat...five!
6...Down and around just for kicks this is how you make a six!
7...Across the sky and down from heaven.  That's the way to make a seven!
8...Make an "S" but do not wait.  Go back up and close the gate.  Eight!
9...Make a hoop and then a line.  That's the way to make a nine!
