Five Counting to 100 songs that kids will love!

Counting to 100 is a key skill that Kindergarteners are expected to master!  Although rote counting can be a mundane task, I've found some great videos on YouTube that are sure to get your students counting to 100 with a smile! 

#1--Jack Hartman's Count to 100 by 1's
This is a fun video that encourages kids to get up and move as they count to 100.  For each set of 10, kids are asked to perform movements such as rope climbing, soldier marching, bunny hops, etc as they are counting.  Learning and moving...can't beat that!! 

#2--I Can Count to 100 by Mark D. Pencil
This is always a favorite of my students!  It has a fun & funky beat that kids really enjoy.  Be prepared'll find yourself singing this all day long!

#3--We Can Count to 100!
This is a simple video that doesn't have a lot of graphics, except for the colorful numbers that are shown as you count.   This one has a cute catchy tune with kids counting/singing to 100.  This video would be perfect if your kiddos need practice counting, but may get distracted by too many graphics!

#4--Count to 100 by Tea Time with Tayla
This video is always a big hit with my girls.....not so much with the boys. LOL  Tayla is an energetic lady who enjoys doing some cheesy movements as she counts to 100.......IN A TUTU.  LOL  You may not want to play it all the time, but every now and then it'll be a fun change of pace!

#5--Pump up to 100 with Dr. Jean
Count to 100 and get your exercise in with the wonderful Dr. Jean!  My kids enjoy anything that Dr. Jean sings and this one is no exception!!

Do you have a favorite counting video that you use in your classroom?  Do share in the comments!!  I'm always on the lookout for engaging songs and videos that can help my kiddos learn.
