This is an easy and interactive way to help children learn how to skip count. I created a handprint by tracing my hand and shrinking it on the photocopier – then copied those handprints on two different colors of paper (green and blue). I alternated the colors by fives up to one hundred. While we wait online for the bathrooms or to go to a special, we can use this wall to practice counting by fives and tens. I instruct the students that when counting by fives, we high five all of the hands – when we count by tens we only high five the blue ones. It makes skip counting a little more fun and easier to memorize!
