Kia ora, Talofa Lava, Malo e lelei and Hello, 

I have been working with groups of teachers focussing on mathematics we have been gathering together some new songs and stories that embed the domains of mathematics in the early years eg.  Locating, Patterning, Shape, Couting, Sorting, Measuring.  I am wondering if anyone has come across some new stories or songs in all languges they would like to share.  Here is mine:  (Tune: Twinkle, Twinkle little star)

Watch the ducks and you will see

They are waddling, one, two three.

First the smallest leads the line, 

Middle-sized duck thinks second place is fine,

Biggest duck is third, you see, 

They are waddling, one, two, three.
