Slip to the Side

Teaching the Rounding of Numbers
Joe Crone



This song is available on Joe Crone's Geometry Park.

Yo! Yo Yo! Say Yo! Come on, Yo Yo!

Well there’s a rule that you need when you’re learning how to round.
It will help you decide to go up or down.

Chorus:
You just slip to the side, and you look for a five.
You just slip to the side, and you look for a five.

Yo! Yo Yo! Say Yo! Come on, Yo Yo!

Well if the number that you see is a five or more,
You gotta round up now, that’s for sure.
If the number that you see is a four or less,
You gotta round down to avoid a mess.

CHORUS:
You just slip to the side, and you look for a five.
You just slip to the side, and you look for a five.

Yo! Yo Yo! Say Yo! Come on, Yo Yo

If you remember this rule and you don’t forget.
You’ll know how to round, it’s a sure bet.

CHORUS:
You just slip to the side, and you look for a five.
You just slip to the side, and you look for a five.

You just slip to the side, and you look for a five.
You just slip to the side, and you look for a five.

Look for a five,
Look for a five,
Look for a five.
Yo
