We Made 12

Song by grade 2 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.

12 In A Story

We made 12 in a story
2 by 6 and 6 by 2
And we drew some pictures too
3 by 4 and 4 by 3
All make 12 you see
Or 1 by 12 and 12 by 1

Here are 12 cupcakes
And we drew apples they’re for sale

A giant speaker, with 12 parts
And there’s some music coming out,

We made 12 in a story
2 by 6 and 6 by 2
And we drew some pictures too
HALF………..By 24
Make 12 and nothing more
Or 1 by 12 and 12 by 1

Here is a messed up, alien
Or 12 buttons on a DS

A 12 pack of Soda pops
Some are open, some are closed

We made 12 in a story
2 by 6 and 6 by 2
And we drew some pictures too
3 by 4 and 4 by 3
All make 12 you see
Or 1 by 12 and 12 by 1
