|Cover of the book A Pair of Socks by Stuart Murphy|
|Pairs of socks in various sizes and colors|
In kindergarten, I followed this book up with a skip counting lesson by 2's. It worked great with the real socks! I gave pairs of socks to students and they stood in a line. I also made this skip counting worksheet where the students can count socks by 2's and write the amounts.
Number Socks 1 to 16
Sometimes, for guided reading, I notice that if I mix things up a bit by making interactive books for the kids, they're more interested in participating. Therefore I made this interactive book where the kids trace the dotted font for each sentence, and decorate their sock according to what the sentence says. Please enjoy these giveaways and let me know what you think.
