This song is a great teaching tool for counting. It starts with five sausages and as soon as they are finished cooking, they are taken out of the pan, one by one. This is teaching addition and subtraction.
Teachers can teach this lesson by using children to play the roles of the little sausages. They can start as a circle of five and as the lyrics tell the cooking of them, they can slowly jump out of the circle to represent fewer and fewer sausages.
