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.

Song 3 About Making 12

We drew a picture of, an ambulance
11 people taking care
Of one patient

We also drew a dragon
And a mouse
And a caterpillar

We made 12 in a story
2 by 6
We made 12 in a story
6 by 2

We drew a picture of, a rocket ship
With 12 people inside
They barely fit

We also drew a robot
And an airplane
And 12 pretty flowers

We made 12 in a story
3 by 4
We made 12 in a story
4 by 3

We drew a ladybug, and a bus
We drew a Nintendo Wii
Don’t cause a fuss

2 groooups of 6 make 12
6 groups of 2
12 makes a rectangle

We made 12 in a story
1 by 12
We made 12 in a story
12 by 1

La, la, la, la ………………….
