Yellow is the Sun

Have you noticed kids learn to count on their fingers? This rhyming picture book blends the finger-counting concept with an abacus to teach the numbers 1-10. The pages teach numbers by showing four different illustrations of each number. The top of the page shows a hand (or hands) holding up the appropriate number of fingers (read them left to right); next to the hands are vertical lines representing the number with tally sticks. The middle of the page contains an illustration of the Al Abacus with the appropriate number of blue or yello beads slid to the left. The bottom of the page shows the number written out (with directional arrows for handwriting). A short rhyme ties it all together--that can be read or sung. The book begins, "Yellow is the sun. This is only one." Quantities beyond five require two hands to count, so the rhymes teach students how to count by adding five and another number. For example, "Why is the sky so blue? Seven is five and two." Numbers 11 through 20 are depicted in abbreviated form in the back, with illustrations of the abacus' and vertical lines (no hands or rhymes). The Yellow is the Sun Combo Kit includes the reading book, 11 tally sticks, and a booklet that contains condensed format music for the song, "Yellow is the Sun," and 3 other songs (Writing Numbers, Three-Ten Days has September and Thirty Days has September" . Free audio MP3 downloads and Sheet Music PDFs of "Yellow is the Sun" and other songs used in the RightStart program are also available on the rightstartmath.com website. ~ Lisa/Ruth
