Math Number Formation Poems

 

 

Straight line down

And then we're done.

That's the way

To make a one.

 

Around and back

On the railroad track.

Two, two,

Two, tow.    

 

Around a tree,

Around a tree.

That's the way

To make a three.

 

Down and over,

Down once more.

That's the way

To make a four.   

 

Straight line down,

Then around.

Hat on top

And five's a clown.

 

Stick and a hoop

Do the tricks.

That's the way

To make a six.

 

Across the sky

And down from heaven.

That's the way

To make a seven.

 

Make an S

And do not wait.

Go back up

And that's an eight.

 

A loop and a line

That's a nine.

 

Straight line down,

Then around with a grin.

That's the way

To make a ten.

    

 

 

Number Poem

Number 1 is like a stick.

A straight line that is very quick.


For number 2, go right around.

Then make a line across the ground.


Go right around. What will it be?

Go round again to make a 3.


Down and over and down some more.

That's the way to make a 4.


Go down and around. Then you stop.

Finish the 5 with a line on top.


Make a curve. Then make a loop.

There are no tricks to make a 6.


Across the sky and down from heaven. That's the way to make a 7.


Make an "S" and then don't wait.

Go up again to make an 8.


Make a loop and then a line.

That's the way to make a 9.


Make a 1 and then a 0.

10 are all your fingers you know!
