The Friends of 10 and other songs about making 10

Learning the addition facts to 10 is one of the most important early numeracy concepts for children to master. One of the most effective ways to help children learn is through movement and music.
Here are 3 songs from Rocking Dan Teaching Man to help children with their fluency of the 10 facts.
The Friends of 10

Yes 10 is having a party and inviting all his friends! Your class will have a fun time at 10's party as all his friends arrive for a good time. 5 and 5 dance the jive, 2 and 8 bring the cake and 9 and 1 have lots of fun. La la la la la the friends of 10. This song gets stuck in your head! I know a number his name is 10 he had a party invited all his friends.
Here is some great feedback I got about The Friends of 10 from some Kindergarten children in Victoria, Australia.
