    Hi,
    I'm looking for someone who knows where to find, or who knows all the little number writing rhymes,
    Ex. 5: short back, belly fat, five wears a funny hat
    7: straight across and down from heaven, that's the way to make a seven.


    I can't remember the rest and I'm trying to find them for a student I have in summer school. Can anyone help?
    Thanks!

    Number 1 is like a stick, a straight line down and that is it.
    Around and back on the railroad track, go straight across and that is that.
    Around a tree, around a tree, that is how you make a three.
    Down and over, down once more, that is how you make a four.
    Go down and around, then you stop, finish the 5 with a hat on top.
    Stick and a hoop do some tricks, that is how you make a six.
    Across the sky and down from heaven, that is how you make a seven.
    Make and "S" and do not wait, go back up and that's an eight.
    Make a loop and then a line, that is how you make a line.
    Straight line down, then around with a grin. That's the way you make a 10.

    Or something like that, it feels like it's been sooooo long. My kids would be able to tell you word for word.

    I can't remember all the words. Dr. Jean has a great song. Check out her website.

    KCG told you the ones that I know.
    I think I ended them differently.
    Straight line down and then you're done that's the way to make a one

    Around the tree around the tree that's the way to make a three
