The 9 Rule
Teaching Children About Adding Nines
Jeff Schroeder


This song is available on Jeff Schroeder's Explore New Worlds.

Whenever you have ... a number plus nine,
Take "1" away from that number, and add it to the nine.
  Now bring that number on down;  9 and 1 makes 10;
  Bring the ten on down, and you're right once again!
THE NINE RULE!

  Now let's take 6; 
6 + 9
  Take "1" away from 6, and it makes 5.
  Now add the "1" to the 9 ... 1 and 9 makes 10;
5 and 10 make 15,
Let's all shout it again!
It's THE NINE RULE!       
6 + 9 = 15

  Now let's take 4; 
4 + 9
Take "1" away from 4, and it makes 3.
  Now add the "1" to the 9 ... 1 and 9 makes 10;
3 and 10 make 13,
Let's all shout it again!
It's THE NINE RULE!       
4 + 9 = 13

  Now let's take 7; 
7 + 9
  Take "1" away from 7, and it makes 6.
  Now add the "1" to the 9 ... 1 and 9 makes 10;
6 and 10 make 16,
Let's all shout it again!
It's THE NINE RULE!       
7 + 9 = 16

Now let's take 5; 
5 + 9
  Take "1" away from 5, and it makes 4.
  Now add the "1" to the 9 ... 1 and 9 makes 10;
4 and 10 make 14,
Let's all shout it again!
It's THE NINE RULE!       
5 + 9 = 14
