As we’ve mentioned before, we like our family playlist to include songs that everyone likes. But does that mean we don’t have some educational songs for our kids on that list? No. We have educational songs that we love on the playlist!
Here’s a sample of songs from our regular playlist that help our kiddoes learn how to count while they enjoy singing along:
1,2,3,4/ Feist : Yes, this one only goes up to four (for most of the song anyway). But it’s catchy and fun, and you have to start somewhere.
2,4,6,8 Motorway/ Tom Robinson: Counting by twos is also a great skill!
I’m Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend How To Dance With You/ Black Kids: Another one that only counts to four. But we love it so! Bluey adores the refrain!
Monkey- Hockey/ James Kochalka: This song counts all the way to to nine with fun lyrics about a sports playing primate.
Kiss Off/ Violent Femmes: Ten is for Everything! Everything! Everything!
7 Things/ Miley Cyrus: She doesn’t count out loud in this song, but it still offers a chance to encourage counting up to seven!
While a majority of the recommendations above weren’t written as kids songs, this one was. But it’s so good, we love it and sing it every time it comes on.
3 Is The Magic Number/ Blind Melon: Counting by threes! It takes three legs to make a tripod, or to make a table stand.
So load up your iPod with these great sing-along counting songs and bring some more math to your day-to-day!
