## Description

Video: Longer or Shorter | Longest or Shortest
Check out our ever-growing library of math songs at https://www.numberock.com.

----------------------------------------------------

Q. I'd like to show my students this video but my school blocks YouTube videos. Where else can I watch this video to work around this problem?
A. You can watch this video here; ad-free and child-safe: (coming soon)

Q. What is the meaning of Shorter or Longer
A. Being able to express and compare one object's length as shorter or longer than another object is a fundamental measurement skill.

Q.What grade levels do this video target?
A. This video targets learning standards in 2nd Grade and 3rd Grade. This video also targets standards in the UK from KS2 (Year 3-4) to KS2.

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?

A. Make sure to check out our additional teaching resources over on our website at numberock.com.

Once there, you can access our complete library of learning resources which can be accessed free for a full month (and you can cancel anytime). At the end of the month you'll have the opportunity to lock in a price of \$4.95/month or \$49.95/year for as long as the subscription remains active.

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.

Coming Soon:

1. 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.

Hope to see you at https://numberock.com!

Our Even and Odd Numbers video is aligned with the following Common Core and TEKS standards:

1.MD.1
Order three objects by length; compare the lengths of two objects indirectly by using a third object.

1.MD.2
Express the length of an object as a whole number of length units, by laying multiple copies of a shorter object (the length unit) end to end; understand that the length measurement of an object is the number of same-size length units that span it with no gaps or overlaps. Limit to contexts where the object being measured is spanned by a whole number of length units with no gaps or overlaps.

2.MD.4
Measure to determine how much longer one object is than another, expressing the length difference in terms of a standard length unit.
