Twos-Day Dress Up Ideas
You can wear a tutu over your regular work clothes! Check out stretchy tutus here.
You can also let your students dress up! This would be the perfect day to dress like a twin! Students can pick a partner in the classroom to dress like, or you can have your whole class dress the same way to match you!
- Dubble Bubble Gum
- Nerds (the boxes with two colors)
- Kit Kat Bars
Twos-day is the perfect day to reinforce doubles facts and multiplying by 2! Here are TWO of my favorite videos from YouTube.
Create Twos-Day Wearables and Have a PhotoShoot
You can make Twos-day glasses or a Twos-day crown.
Use the photo props included in my Twos-Day resource to have a fun and memorable photoshoot with your class!
Learn About Amazing Animals Pairs
My Twos-day resource includes four passages (with comprehension questions) about amazing animal duos! Your students can learn about these monogamous animals: macaroni penguins, swans, bald eagles, and seahorses!
This homophones worksheet is a fun way to practice words that sound the same but are spelled differently.
You can have your students use some of the words in sentences in their journals as additional practice and to make sure that they understand when to use each spelling.
My 2sday unit also includes homophone practice for to, too, and two!
Twos-Day Exercises/Brain Breaks
In my Twos-day resource, I’ve included several exercise/brain break cards. Draw a card and you’ll have your students moving around in no time. They’ll love counting to twenty-two as they do jumping jacks, arm circles, sit-ups, and more!
Twos-Day Math Activities
Practice math with our twos-day board games! In these games, your students will roll dice and double their number, multiply it by two, or add twenty-two. These partner games are a fun way to get students to practice math. We’ve included a color version that can be used with red and yellow counters and also a black and white version that can be used with crayons.
In addition to these games, your students can also practice picture graph and bar graph skills. In the picture graph worksheet, the key is for 2 pets. In the bar graph worksheet, the lines go up by 20.
Twos-Day Writing Activity
We’ve included a fun “When I’m 22” worksheet so students can dream about where they’ll be in life when they’re a young adult.
- Younger students can draw in the bubbles.
- Older students can use it as a graphic organizer and turn it into a paragraph when they’ve finished.
