12 inches in a foot…

(No, not that kind of foot, the kind of foot we use in measurement!)

**Now here’s the story of how I taught my Mom****that not all feet are 1 foot long!**

Mom said, “wow!”

She said, “Woo-hoo!

You squeezed 12 inches in your shoe!”

I said, “No way!

Not what I put!

All I squeezed in was my FOOT!

All I squeezed in was my FOOT!”

But then Mama said something like this:

“You slipped your foot in your shoe,

And a foot’s 12 inches, agree?”

“I do!”

“If there’s 12 inches in a foot,

Then there’s 12 inches in your shoe…”

I thought my mom was mistaken so I said this:

“You see, my foot,

It’s pretty small,

It’s not 12 inches long at all!

Don’t use my foot for measuring, my foot is not 1 foot!”

It’s not 12 inches long!

But in measurement

There is a foot,

That’s 12 inches long!

Everybody Count!

1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-11-12

12 inches in a foot…

(No, not that kind of foot, the kind of foot we use in measurement)

How many inches in a foot?

12 inches in a foot!

How many inches in a foot?

12 inches in a foot!

Now here’s something not too hard,

It’s not 12 miles, or 1 yard,

A foot’s 12 inches, measure quick!

Use a ruler, or yardstick!

But our foot size, we don’t choose,

That’s the foot that slips in shoes!

A foot’s 12 inches, pretty neat,

At least the foot that’s not our feet!

1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8- 9-10-11-12

There’s 12 inches in a foot.

(No, not that kind of foot, the kind of foot we use in measurement)

How many inches in a foot?

12 inches in a foot!

How many inches in a foot?

12 inches in a foot!

How many inches in a foot?

12 inches in a foot!

How many inches in a foot?

12 inches in a foot!

How many inches in a foot?

12 inches in a foot!
