My teacher read the class a book,

But none of us listened at all,

Because Right behind her head,

A big bunny taught instead,

He was writing math,

Right on our classroom wall...

Big bunny came to teach our class,

And used tens frames for his math!

Put 5 counters in 2 rows,

There were ten just like our toes,

One to ten is what the bunny really knows!!!

Now bunny wants to add again,

To get numbers more than ten,

But he doesn’t have the space,

On his tens frame, there’s no place,

So let’s help him out before he cries again!
