This is a sample from Rock ‘N Learn Addition & Subtraction Rap.
Kids love solving addition and subtraction facts by playing a fun game of who can answer first. With a total of 498 facts, students build speed and accuracy while being entertained by D. J. Doc Roc and the Get Smart Crew. Cool performances by the hip-hop hamster and his animated friends provide an exciting reward for solving sums up to 18 and differences from 18. Perfect for all ages. Includes drills with both addition and subtraction facts.

“The “rap” is fun for the kids. Each rap has a theme, such as the “Adding Machine. ” They are clear, there isn’t a question as to what the rappers said. It has a simple beat that the students are able to keep with the rapper. Plus, it is interactive. In the review sections, there is a wait time. The rapper asks, “4 plus 5 is. . . ” And, there is a pause, or wait time, to give the students a chance to respond before the answer is given, meaning immediate feedback! I have been using this for about a week and a half in class. With the last assessment (the first full week of using it), I saw noticeable gains in the students’ speed and accuracy. Plus, the students ask me regularly if we can watch some of it because they too really enjoy it. Overall, I would recommend Rock ‘N Learn’s Addition and Subtraction Rap for any parent or teacher to help your children with addition and subtraction math facts. “Classroom Tools Review
