mathematics - song booklet

mathematics - song booklet

I put this booklet together and added pictures that can be printed off, laminated and used with the songs. We really enjoyed it, hope it is of use :) ( there are a couple of pictures missing as I already had them) some songs haven’t got tunes, we just chanted them, adding rhythm when possible. Most of the others are well known tunes. I am afraid I haven’t got the music script for them. I am sure there is a site on the internet that will help with the tunes x
