Learning your address

Everything goes to song in my world. Everything.

So here’s a little song I created for teaching my kids their address. I also use it to teach my Life Skills class their address. My 2 year old can now tell me our address exactly, including the zip code. How about yours? 😉

To the tune of Frere Jacques:

Where do I live? (Frere Jacque)
Where do I live? (Frere Jacque)
1 2 3 (Dormez vous?)
North West (Dormez vous?)
Tiny little street (Sonnez les matines)
Urban, In my state (Sonnez les matines)
90210 (Din Din Don)
That’s where I live (Din Dain Don)

  1. This is a VERY clever idea CC. I have to remember this. We’re still working on the basics.

  2. That is a great idea! We just started teaching our girls our address recently. I’m going to try this tomorrow with them.

    Do you have any tips for phone numbers?

  3. Not trying… yes. I have a phone number song. I’ll report it on some future “Teaching Tuesday”. Warning: it is not to a traditional tune so I may need to sing it for you! Aack!

  4. Super idea. we haven’t made it to the zip code, but with this, we’ll get there for sure. Thanks for yet another great tip.

  5. THank you, thank you, thank you for this post. I have been trying to teach Monkette her address with no luck for about two months now.

  6. Oh my gosh, my Little Guy will love this! He makes up his own songs and puts new lyrics to songs he knows all the time. Thank you. 🙂

  7. I introduced the new song last night at the dinner table. DS was immediately fascinated, wanting me to repeat it a half dozen or so times. Then he wanted to try singing it with me. He doesn’t have it totally down yet, but will soon, I’m sure.

    I love these kinds of tips, keep them coming! 🙂

  8. We taught out children to remember their phone number by making it into a little song. When we moved I had to think of a new tune (thank goodness I am a musican). My eldest daughter can still remember all 3 of our old phone numbers by singing the tunes. I will have to try the Frere Jacques tune to teach the little ones our address.

  9. I taught mine their address to the tune of “I’ve got that joy, joy joy joy down in my heart” I also used it to teach their whole name and daddy’s name. How funny. I thought I was the only one who did this. I finally came up with a tune to fit our phone number, but then I forgot before they woke up and we could practice. I like your blog!
