Children learn skip-counting skills as they listen to the song, view numbers in the context of a 120 chart, visualize larger patterns on the 120 chart, and view numbers in isolation. The lyrics sheet also includes a 120 chart as well as isolated numbers. The skip counting "flap-tivity" shows the concept of skip-counting in another interactive way.
Add an additional kinesthetic (and advanced) component to this song by asking children to put up one finger every time they skip-count. Next, ask multiplication questions. For instance, if children put up 3 fingers as they count by 5 three times, they have just figured out that 3 x 5 = 15.

This song can challenge Kindergarten and first grade students--and goes beyond the standards:
Count to 100 by ones and by tens.
The numbers 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90 refer to one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, or nine tens (and 0 ones).
This song supports the following second grade standards:
Determine whether a group of objects (up to 20) has an odd or even number of members, e.g., by pairing objects or counting them by 2s; write an equation to express an even number as a sum of two equal addends.
Use addition to find the total number of objects arranged in rectangular arrays with up to 5 rows and up to 5 columns; write an equation to express the total as a sum of equal addends.
Count within 1000; skip-count by 5s, 10s, and 100s.
Third graders who do not know how to count by 2's, 5's, and 10's can definitely benefit from this song as well!
Fluently multiply and divide within 100, using strategies such as the relationship between multiplication and division (e.g., knowing that 8 × 5 = 40, one knows 40 ÷ 5 = 8) or properties of operations. By the end of Grade 3, know from memory all products of two one-digit numbers.
