School House Rock

Okay, this is a total aside, but I just have to write about it.

All of us who grew up in the seventies remember School House Rock very fondly. (Come on, Conjunction Junction, What’s Your Function?)

These songs are amazing–they really do teach. Zoe has fallen a bit behind in her times tables because they get squeezed in (read: ignored) in the Chinese part of her school day. So, we have begun listening to Multiplication Rock in the car on the way home from school.

After only one ride, her 4s, 6s and 7s were solid, and her 8s were almost perfect.

My personal favorite is the sixes, shown below. (Although Naughty Number Nine is a close second!!!)

The girls really like eight, which was my favorite when I was a girl!

    we have the adverbs one on a cd mix. it is pure hilarity to listen to a 2 year old walking around singing “an adverb is a word. that modifies a verb.”
