We have been having some difficulty skip counting by fives, so we have been practicing every day. First we made this chart. We traced and cut out our hands. Then we counted each finger. Each time we finished counting a hand (5), we put up the corresponding number until we counted the whole class. One of the students was on a vacation (lucky! he went to the warmth of Mexico!) but he will trace his hand when he comes home. His # 100 is waiting for him :)
I tell the class to GIVE ME FIVES! and then we start counting! Keep practicing at home... maybe try counting everyone's fingers AND TOES!
