Lesson 4: Before, After and Between

Preparation


With this song we will practice counting from 1-10, then 1-20, then 1-30. If you sing along with this song, you can skip the first section of the lesson where we count forwards and backwards from 1 to 30. Otherwise, I do not mind if you skip this warm up today.
