### Square One Math TV Show

by April Riley Tate

So, this is totally cheesy - but fun.  Square One was a math tv show for kids on PBS way back in the day.  It's very dated now (watch the music videos if you want a laugh), but really funny and would still be entertaining to elementary age students.  Individual sketches are available on Youtube.com as well.

### Place Value Math Song: Ones, Tens, Hundreds

by Maggie Davis

I chose this video because learning place value could be difficult at first for children.  I recommend showing this video to your students, because not only are they able to hear and see what numbers represent which place value, but there are also the use of pictures which allow them to relate both the number and place value together.
