Supporting document included
This is an additional download that supports the video.
Product Description
This video teaches children that they can add numbers in any order. In my class, we do just about exactly what you see in the video: One or more children lead the group as the whole class switches their hands back and forth while the song plays. It's a simple way to teach this concept using audio, visual, and kinesthetic modalities.

This 1st grade addition song is aligned with the first part of the Common Core standard CCSS.Math.Content.1.OA.B.3:

Apply properties of operations as strategies to add and subtract.2 Examples: If 8 + 3 = 11 is known, then 3 + 8 = 11 is also known. (Commutative property of addition.) To add 2 + 6 + 4, the second two numbers can be added to make a ten, so 2 + 6 + 4 = 2 + 10 = 12. (Associative property of addition--taught in a different song.)

Along with this video, you'll get:

1. A link to the video on Vimeo, where you can stream it outside of your TpT account and download it (for classroom use only). Use for whole-class lessons, small group lessons, and centers.

2. Black-and-white lyrics. Print these for each child. You may want to include these in math or song notebooks. Children can also read lyrics without the music whole-class, independently, with partners, or as part of guided reading groups.
