Are You Getting Ready to Teach Even or Odd Numbers?

Most second graders start the year reviewing odd and even numbers. Especially if your district uses Go Math, Odd and Even Numbers are the first lesson in chapter one.

Ways to Teach & Spiral Odd and Even Numbers
Every morning we sing Hello, Hi There from Shari Sloane's School is Cool album as part of our morning calendar. When she says "find a partner near you," I stop the music and let them pair up. 

Hello, Hi There Song on Video

We then quickly discuss that we have an EVEN number of students and everyone has a partner. Then we continue on with our routine. 
BUT THEN... when we have some absent, on a day when we have an ODD number of students, we stop and I will be that person's partner. We quickly discuss that ONE was left over, etc. 
After a few days of a ODD number of students they become wise to my ways and EVERYONE wants to be the one left over so they can be my partner. So then I teach them that one group will have three students, one group will have an ODD number and we can roll on for the rest of the year. It really clicks with my kinders, and by exposing them to ODD and EVEN every.single.day, HOPEFULLY, they will be ready to roll in second grade for your review.
Even if you teach first, second or third, it is a great song to start your Morning Meeting with and to build new friends in your classroom! Enjoy! :)
