Author Damian Harvey came to visit our school!


We use daily number songs to help us learn and recite our number bonds and facts. We love singing along and dancing to Jack Hartmann's counting songs! 


Teach your children to count to 100 as they get some great exercise too. This cool kid-friendly song starts out with a message about staying healthy and fit and having fun counting to 100 together.
