Practise learning this song at home to help to learn how to subtract!
We’re gonna subtract, tract, tract,
from zero to five, five, five,
hold up your hand….
and do the five finger jive!
Hold one finger up, like a big tall tree,
now fold it down, how many fingers do you see?
1-1 is zero!
Hold 2 fingers up, like the letter v,
now fold one down
how fingers do you see?
Hold 3 fingers up, and wiggle them around,
now fold one down,
how many have you found?
Hold 4 fingers up, and wave them in the air
fold one finger down,
how many are there?
Hold 5 fingers up, and wave them at the train
fold over your thumb
how many remain?
Give me a high five, and take nothing away
how many fingers are left?
5 fingers hurray!
