For preschoolers and kindergartners, learning your phone number is an important part of learning about personal safety. Since it can be hard to remember the string of digits, your child may find it easier to use songs to learn your phone number. Here are some ways to set your phone number to the tune of common nursery songs.

Note: In all of these songs, "555-1212" has been used as an example phone number. Your phone number should fit just as well.
