    Doubles Rap

    We use Saxon Math and have a great Doubles Facts Rap: Begin with clapping a four beat then say:

    It's the doubles, baby, let's go, let's go.
    It's the doubles, baby, and it starts with zero!

    0 + 0 = 0 Oh!
    1 + 1 = 2 Ooooh!
    2 + 2 = 4 More!
    3 + 3 = 6 Kicks!
    4 + 4 = 8 That's great!
    5 + 5 = 10 Again!

    We do this for a week and then begin 6-10--same way; 12 = Dig and Delve!, 14 = Let's lean!; 16 = You're a queen; 18 = Jellybean!; and 20 = That's plenty! I can hear my students singing as they answer their practice fact sheets during class. They LOVE it! Hope this helps!
