We have all heard of the 100th day of school, and maybe even celebrated it in the classroom. However, 2nd grade teachers (and any grade, really) have an amazing once in a lifetime special school day this year. We are calling this day Two’s Day! The date will be February 22, 2022, or 2/22/22! AND it takes place on a Tuesday! (Think Two’s day). Twos all around!
Note: Hold your event on 2/2/22 if that works better. In fact, why not start a tradition and celebrate Two’s Day every year on 2/2 or 2/22? Keep reading for some fun and engaging ways to celebrate Two’s Day with students in 2022 and beyond!

Read this book and complete the Tuesday comprehension questions and reading passages included in the Lucky Little Learners Two’s Day resource!
In this book, everything the main character puts in a magic pot doubles! This could be a fun book to correlate with input/output math tables!
This book is about doubling and would go great with working on addition doubles or multiplying by 2.
Two’s Day Theme Music
A good celebration needs it’s own theme music to get everyone into the spirit, don’t you agree?! Play this fun ditty in the background or kick off a dance party in Two’s Day style!
Two’s Day Artifact Museum
This idea requires a note sent home ahead of time. Students could bring in something that comes in twos or looks like doubles. For example, egg crates, 6 packs of pop, yogurt packs, etc.. Set the items on a table in the classroom and call it the “Two Cool Museum”.
Big Buddies/Little Buddies
If allowed in your school, invite over older or younger students and have then work in twos for the day!
Ask parents to send in a photo of their student at age two! Put them on chart paper and number each picture. Let you students guess which classmate is in each picture. This makes an adorable hallway display after Two’s Day is over!
Here’s an editable parent letter so you can easily explain to families what Two’s Day is all about, and even request photos if you decide to try this cute activity!
