Kindergarten Christmas Light Skip Counting By 2, 5, and 10
We are now learning skip counting at home. Fun. I thought learning algebraic fractions with the older kids was fun but skip counting is even more stressful…I mean fun. Confetti balloon fun even. I say let’s skip count and she skips away saying “No..No..No…100.” I wanted to find an easy way to practice this skill while also making it fun for her and less stressful for the both of us. That was when it hit me… she loves to take the ornaments off the tree. Why not use that to help her learn to skip count.
I created these light ornaments with a hole punch and ornament hangers. I then hung them all over the back of the tree.The section we don’t decorate because no one sees it :). I then placed a ribbon across our magnetic board although you could easily tie it up instead. She then took them off one at a time and hung them on the ribbon creating a line of numbers. She had so much fun taking them off and hanging them back on to the tree to redo the activity that she didn’t even realize how much she was learning. So now we can count to 100 by 10 without too much issue. She still wants to leave out poor 30, I have no idea what she has against 30…and 14 but that is a whole different story.
This set includes 2 (up to 24), 5, and 10.
