New Hands
skip count by 10

There once was a boy,
With
2 little hands,

Who wished he had 2 more,

Late that night,
"Can I maybe wake-up with 4
?"
The morning arrived,
And when he looked,
4 hands is what he had,

10 and 10,
Makes
20 fingers,
The very next night,
Boy went to sleep,
And genie came again,
He brought the boy,
2 more hands,
What would he do then?

10 - 20 - 30 fingers,
Oh gosh! Oh gosh! Oh gosh!
10 -20- 30 fingers,
Were way too many to wash!
That night, the boy,
Wouldn't sleep,
He didn't want more hands!
He stayed awake,
That whole, long night,
What he did,
That long dark night,
Cutting
30 fingernails,

 Math Challenges If the genie gave the boy 6 extra hands, how many fingers would the boy have in total? If the genie made a mistake, and only gave the boy 3 extra hands (that's an odd number of hands). How many fingers would the boy have in total? If the genie gave the boy 2 extra hands each night for 7 nights, how many fingers would the boy have after the 7 nights? (remember he started with 2)
