By now you may have heard talk about Two’s Day. But just what IS Two’s Day AND what cool activities are available for your students on this once in a teaching career day? Keep reading for more info on Two’s Day, activity ideas, and Two’s Day FREEBIES to make your celebration rock!
First of all, what is Two’s Day?
This year February 22nd, 2022 is a written date of all 2’s: 2-22-22. How cool is that? AND to top it off, it falls on a Tuesday! Kindergarten and First grade really hammer out the hundredth day of school, so this year second graders will have their own special day! There has been a lot of chatter in the Lucky 2nd Grade Teachers facebook about this Two’s Day so team Lucky Little Learners sprung into action. Follow the steps below to kick off Two’s Day!
Start With the Ideas
We have already compiled a post full of classroom activities to make Two’s Day ultra special and memorable to your students. The post includes room transformation ideas, snack ideas, read aloud examples, freebies and highlights the activities included in the Lucky Little Learners Two’s Day Pack. See that post here: Two’s Day Ideas.
Grab the Two’s Day Freebies
Of course have a Two’s Day freebie for you! This freebie pack includes three Twosday ideas (and answer keys). Scroll down to grab this free download. Scroll all the way to the bottom for a bonus freebie too!
- Two-Tally Colorful
This first freebie activity will have students solving addition and subtraction problems with the answers all being even numbers. (Hopefully students will connect this and say “Hey! The answers are all numbers we say when we area skip counting by 2s!”) Also, students will have to use their eagle eyes and count how many 2s they see on the page as well as do an amazing number trick! (They will want to do this trick over and over and will probably do it to people at home too!)
2. I Spy Twos
This next activity has students searching for pairs. (There is even a checklist included!) This would be a great morning work (or bell work) activity when students first walk in the door on Two’s Day.
3. We go two-gether like..
The last freebie activity works with famous word pairs like peanut butter & jelly or Batman & Robin. Once students come up with the word pairs, they will find their written words in the word search. Bonus activity: have students list more famous word pairs they can think of. It could be a whole class list to work on all day!
