I start my math lessons with math videos almost every day.
They are a great way to warm up and start thinking about numbers. They’re a great review of the concepts we’re working on.
Most of all, they are so fun and interactive that my students LOVE math time!
Here are some of our primary favorite videos:
Dancing Monsters Count to 50
This is our absolute favorite for early learners for counting to 50.
The cute monsters dance around to the beat, while students count in groups of ten fingers. Awesome!
Practice doubles with this song:
Try this video for skip counting by 2, 5 and 10!
A great way to introduce basic number stories or word problems!
The pirates are back to teach simple addition this time!

Video Tips For Your Classroom
TIP #1: Collect and organize your videos using Symbaloo (www.symbaloo.com).
This is an online bookmarking system that arranges your website links visually with icons for each link, like an ipad screen.Just click on the icon you want, and it will open for you right away.
Also, because it’s web-based, you can add links at home, and they will be there when you log into symbaloo at school!
Here’s a picture of what it looks like on your computer.
Removing Ads From Videos
We use ViewPure to block ads and pop ups while we are watching our videos. It brings your video to a blank background so you won’t see any ads at all. It also prevents new videos from automatically starting after yours is done playing, which is really handy when you have a classroom full of eyes on the screen.
To use it, first go to Purify.com.
Drag and drop the orange button you see below to your Internet Dashboard/Favorites/Bookmarks.
When using YouTube, press Purify and the video opens in a new window.
