Octopus March, or Multiplying by 8's

We just took our Unit 3 assessment today. It was on multiplication and division. We will show you how to do some of the questions from our test later. Now, however, we want to share one of our multiplication songs with you.

8’s Song — Octopus March
(to the tune of “The Adaams Family”)

Octopus March (stomp stomp)
Octopus March (stomp stomp)
Octopus March, Octopus March, Octopus March (stomp stomp)

You know there’s 8 in one
And 16 in two
24 in three
And 32 in four

Octopus March (stomp stomp)
Octopus March (stomp stomp)
Octopus March, Octopus March, Octopus March (stomp stomp)

There’s 40 in five
And 48 in six
56 in seven

(chant) And 8 by 8 went into the store to buy a Nintendo 64!

72 in nine
And 80 in ten

Octopus March (stomp stomp)
Octopus March (stomp stomp)
Octopus March, Octopus March, Octopus March (stomp stomp)
