Movement in the classroom also serves other purposes. Crossing midline is an important activity that should be incorporated into your schedule. Read this article for more information about the importance of this activity. My students practice this skill during calendar time each day. If you peeked into my classroom, you would think my class was doing aerobics! This directions for this activity is included with my FREE Skip Counting Birds packet.

I included a skip counting by 2's math center in my Skip Counting Birds packet for you to try. If you like the activity and would like the set of skip counting by 2's, 3's, 4's, 5's, 6's, 7's, 8's, 9's, and 10's, you can purchase the complete set at my TPT store for $3.
There is a colorful page like this for each number. I would suggest putting these sheets in a page protector and letting your students write their answer with a marker.
There is also a page like this that students can color.
Here's a fun rap video you can show your class, too.
