🍎 You're cordially invited to come check out our growing library of award-winning math video animations at https://www.numberock.com 🍎
Thank you for watching our 3D Shapes Song For Kids.
Q. Why is it important for kids to learn shapes?
A. Shapes are all around us and learning about them helps kids to identify and organize visual information as well as improving skills in other areas such as writing where a first step in understanding numbers and letters is to recognize their shapes
Q.What grade levels do this video target?
A. This video targets learning standards in 1st Grade and 2nd Grade. This video also targets standards in the UK from KS1 (Year 2) to KS2 (Year 3)
Q. Where did you guys come from?
A. Numberock is a project that I, Mr. Hehn, began as a 5th Grade math teacher of 7 years. It came together after years of experimenting with my lessons trying to figure out the best way to help my students retain the math concepts they were learning.
Q. Does Numberock drive real results in the classroom?
A. I knew I found the secret sauce when not only were my students retaining the concepts longer, they were singing the songs outside of the classroom during recess and at home with their parents during dinnertime. The songs were so catchy, my students couldn't get the math songs out of their head!
During testing, I often found my students humming the melodies in order to jostle their memory of a rule or problem solving process. As we've all experienced, there is something about the power of music that allows us to retain information easier and for longer periods of time. Without getting into the finer details of multi-sensory learning and how it often helps the students who most need the help, the power of a catchy song is hard to deny.
Q. I love your songs. Where can I experience more of what NUMBEROCK has to offer?
We have additional teaching resources that are always expanding over at https://www.numberock.com. For the low price of $4.95/month, premium members gain access to video-aligned activities like worksheets, printable posters/anchor charts, task cards, self-graded assessments, games, and more.
1. Self-Graded Assessments | These will soon be available for every Common Core and TEKS standard from 2nd-6th Grade so you'll be able to track and monitor student progress while your students complete standards-aligned quizzes that are integrated with the NUMBEROCK video they just watched.
2. Number Notes | Were currently working on creating exercises where students will be able to take notes artistically on printable templates featuring characters from the videos.
Research has shown that this will help to integrate their artistic side side of the student's brain with the mathematical side of their brain which helps with long-term memory retention. Our own research has shown us that teacher's who use start using these templates love them! It seems to be a natural fit as we move beyond our unique auditory learning tools into visual learning tools, that when used in concert, cater to the different types of learners that you teach everyday.

Our 3D Shapes Song For Kids video is aligned with the following Common Core standards:
CCSS.Math.Content.K.G.A.3 - 3D Shapes
Identify shapes as two-dimensional (lying in a plane, "flat") or three-dimensional ("3D solid").
CCSS.Math.Content.1.G.A.2 - Solid Shapes
Compose two-dimensional shapes (rectangles, squares, trapezoids, triangles, half-circles, and quarter-circles) or three-dimensional shapes (cubes, right rectangular prisms, right circular cones, and right circular cylinders) to create a composite shape, and compose new shapes from the composite shape.
