    Look on Amazon. I got some for incredibly cheap (like less than a dollar for some!) Be careful, some are pretty cheesy and depending on the age of the kids, they might not like it.

    Money Rap
    Well I know a song,
    it's really kinda funny,
    it's all about coins,
    and learning to count money.

    Pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters!
    Pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters!

    Now, a penny means one,
    a nickels means five,
    dimes are worth ten,
    and quarters twenty five!

    Pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters!
    Pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters!

    Five pennies in a nickel,
    two nickels in a dime,
    five nickels in a quarter,
    you'll know it every time!

    Pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters!
    Pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters!

    Yeah!

    He is awesome...my 5th graders love him! Here's his website:

    http://http://www.mathraps.com/

    On his first CD, he also has a great song called "Just Because" that is about making wise decisions and not giving in to the social pressures all around them. :)

    Be careful about presenting "rap" as "cool" to students.

    At my school, you'd come across as a dork since the avent of Guitar Hero - you may need to find the "fractions classic-rock song."
