Day 292: 365 Days of Illustrated Song
Posted October 18, 2016on:
The illustrations in this book are fantastic. The illustration counts from 1-13 (appropriate for Halloween). I have trouble maintaining energy and stamina for 13 repetitive verses of the song. I suggest allowing one of the children to pick odds or evens and then sing just the odd or even numbers. Then, the next time, you can sing the opposite. This allows for all kinds of mathematical discussions (odds, evens, opposites), gives you two songs in one, makes each sitting much more interesting in half the time, and you will have energy for the next to do items on your list.
