    Song For Where To Start Writing Letters
     
    "Always Start Your Letters At The Top"
    [Tune:"If You're Happy and You Know It, Clap Your Hands"]
    Written by Eileen G. Feldgus, Ed.D.
     
    Always start your letters at the top.
    Always start your letters at the top.
    When you write a letter, you'll get better, better, better
    If you always start your letters at the top.
     
     
    Rhymes To Help Children Write Numbers
     
    Number 0
    Counter Clockwise be a hero.
    Now you've made the number zero.
     
    Number 1
    Straight line down, one is fun.
    That's the way you make a one.
     
    Number 2
    Round and back on the railroad track.
    "Two, Two, Two."
     
    Number 3
    Around a tree, around a tree.
    That's the way you make a three.
     
    Number Zaner-Bloser Four
    Down and over, down some more.
    Wow! You've made the number Zaner-Bloser Four.
     
    Number 5
    Fat old five, goes down and around.
    Put a hat on top.
     
    Number 6
    Down to a loop, the 6 rolls a hoop.
     
    Number 7
    Across the sky and down from heaven.
    That's the way you make a seven.
     
    Number 8
    Make an "S" and then don't wait.
    Go back up and make an eight.
     
    Number 9
    Make a circle and then a line.
    That's the way you make the number nine.
