peter works with one hammerHere’s a quick and easy song that will get your students both moving productively and counting all at the same time.

 

 

Peter works with 1 hammer, 1 hammer, 1 hammer,
Peter works with 1 hammer, all day long.
(1 fist pretending to pound)

Peter works with 2 hammers, 2 hammers, 2 hammers,
Peter works with 2 hammers, all day long.
(2 fists pounding)

Peter works with 3 hammers, 3 hammers, 3 hammers,
Peter works with 3 hammers, all day long.
(2 fists and 1 foot pounding)

Peter works with 4 hammers, 4 hammers, 4 hammers,
Peter works with 4 hammers, all day long.
(2 fists and 2 feet pounding)

Peter works with 5 hammers, 5 hammers, 5 hammers.  Peter works with 5 hammers,
(2 fists, 2 feet and head nodding)
 Then he goes to sleep.
(put hands under head like pillow)
