We Made 12

Song by grade 2-3 students. Students read The Doorbell Rang and Stay in Line and explored different ways of making 12. They imagined and drew pictures of what arrays of 12 dots could be, they wrote to describe their ideas, and then presented them to their peers. Their descriptions and drawings were put together to make up this song/video.

We Made 12 in a Story

We made 12 in a Story
2 by 6 and 6 by 2
We made 12 in a Story
Have a look at the pictures we drew.

12 Kids on a bus
Have a look from the birds eye view
See my caterpillar
It has 12 polka dots too.

We made 12 in a story
3 by 4 and 4 by 3
We made 12 in a story
Look close at the pictures you see.

A cell phone with 12 buttons
12 dogs on a water slide
12 wheels on a bus
Boy can those dogs glide.

We made 12 in a Story
1 by 12 and 12 by 1
We made 12 in a Story
Have a look at the pictures they’re fun.

12 people in a house
12 people in a line
Eggs in an egg carton
And buttons on the stove tell time

We made 12 in a Story
2 by 6 and 6 by 2
We made 12 in a Story
Have a look at these bunnies too

We made 12 in a Story
Even Half by 24
We made 12 in a Story
That’s what this songs for
