Addition Pokey
("Totally Math" CD)

Put 1 finger in.        (Hold up  finger on right hand.)
Put 1 finger more.  (Hold up 1 finger on left hand.)
Shake them altogether  (Roll around.)
And then lay them on the floor.  (Place on floor or table.)
Add them both together,  (Bring hands together.)
And you don’t want to stall.
Now you have 2 in all.

2 fingers…3 fingers…4 fingers…5 fingers
