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).



Fives:
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!

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

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

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

Feel free to share your active learning ideas!
