Have each group make 10 paper chains. Encourage children to only do the number of jumping jacks they feel most comfortable with.
Tell them they can dance in place using their best moves for seconds. Ask children for other ways the sets of jumping jacks can be divided for subsequent days. Spelling Activity Ask your students to write down words that they know how to spell.
This has allowed us to clearly see the progression of time and even predict how many more days until the th day of school.
