Even and Odd Numbers Song for Kids | Odds and Evens for Grades 2 & 3


I was exploring an “Enchanted Wood.” A wise fox started talking; I somehow understood. She asked, “Please, will you join me beneath this pine?” She whispered, “For you, even numbers, I’ll define.” They are zero, two, four, six, and eight. Even numbers all share one trait. You can split them down the middle; if they make pairs, you’ve solved the riddle! Because one plus one equals two, and two plus two makes four, it’s true. Then three plus three equals six, and four plus four makes eight big sticks! Numbers, big and small…. today we’re gonna count them all! Some are even; some are odd… won’t you join our counting squad!? We walked further into the forest, when a rat squeaked, “Please sit with me, and be my guest, and I’ll take the time to show you how to tell which numbers are odd.” We looked at the fox, and she gave a sly nod. The first five odd numbers in line are one, three, five, seven, and nine. They are not divisible by two, and for all odd numbers the same is true. Between 1 and 10, there are five of them. Now I’ll count the odd numbers again: one, three, five, seven, and nine. They’re every other number on the number line! Numbers, big and small…. today we’re gonna count them all! Some are even; some are odd… won’t you join our counting squad!? Then we were met by a barn owl perched outside his birdhouse on a dowel. He said, “Please visit with me for just a short time, and I’ll discuss bigger even and odd numbers as I rhyme.” “Bigger numbers are even or odd, too! And the last digit holds the clue. So, what about the number 72? It’s even, because it ends in two. Or what about the number 93? That number’s odd, because – you see – the last digit’s the odd number, three, which means it can’t be split evenly.” Numbers, big and small…. today we’re gonna count them all! Some are even; some are odd… won’t you join our counting squad!? We wandered further into the wilderness; an alligator appeared from the darkness. “G’day mates! I’ve got a special number to teach you, For you must learn about zero before your journey’s through…” “Zero can’t be split to make a new amount, but it’s still even when you count, because if zero’s a number’s final digit, that number can be evenly split. For instance, consider the number ten. Let’s split it in half, and we’ll see then, it makes two fives, and that’s a pair. If it ends in zero, an even number’s there.” HAHA! Numbers, big and small…. today we’re gonna count them all! HAHA! Some are even; some are odd… won’t you join our counting squad!? Come on, join in! Numbers, big and small…. today we’re gonna count them all! Yep, all of ’em! Some are even; some are odd… won’t you join our counting squad!? Number’s, big and small…. OH! Think it’s over… HAH! Too much fun….
