Learn to Rap


Some first grade girls at St. Andrew’s Schools in Honolulu, Hawaii can not get enough of math class these days.

Tara Wengronowitz wanted to make learning “Doubles Facts” (additions in which a number is added to itself) a little more fun.

So she turned to rap.

She went on YouTube and found a a math rap number she was able to tailor to her girls.

“I heard of other classes using a rap to teach the doubles facts so I YouTubed doubles rap and I found some cute raps to do, and I tailored one to fit our all-girls first grade classroom and it’s really been fun,” said Wengronowitz. “We call this the ‘Doubles Rap. ‘ ”

Wengronowitz said the rap song has helped her girls get perfect grades in doubles addition.
