Five Minute Activity: Active Skip Counting

Sometimes, the best way to learn is kinesthetically! A quick activity we often do in the middle of our school day is to count by fives and tens (and sometimes twos).

Hold open one hand, push it out, and say "Five".  Push out the other hand and say "Ten".  Continue alternating hands until you reach 100!

Count 10, 20, 30, 40, etc. and jump as high as possible on each number.

Hop like a bunny (and add "two" ears) as you count by twos to twenty.

Alternate and hop on each foot as you count by ones to 20, 50, or 100.

Feel free to share your active learning ideas!

What timing! I was just introducing Gabe to the concept of skip counting today. :)
