Monday Math Literature: Counting by 2's

This time of year you will find me working hard on counting skills including counting by 2's.  A few weeks ago, I shared 10 ways to practice counting by 2.  I received an email from a reader with a few suggestions for other math literature book to practice counting by 2's.  Because I am always on the lookout for more Math Literature, I was intrigued.  I have many math literature books that mention counting by 2 but none where it is the entire focus of the story.  I knew I had to get these books, and I am glad I did.  


The entire focus of this book is counting by 2's!  It is in the context of animals getting on a trolley with a capacity of 20.  I used these cute cards along with this story.  



I love using penguins as a winter theme in primary classrooms and this fun count by 2's to 20 book will be a great addition to my penguin math materials.  

I also stumbled upon this great video this week!  I love the songs for counting by 5, 2, and 10 and LOVE the movements as well!
