Learning the numbers from 0-9 is a snap with these quick and easy rhymes. We recommend using them repeatedly throughout your day (when you do calendar, count how many kids are present/absent/want lunch, or any other time you’re counting). With a little repetition, these poems will quickly become a helpful reminder of how to form the numbers.
