Everyone loves a good reason to celebrate, right? Special days are sprinkled throughout the year, giving us something extra to look forward to, something fun to plan for, and something to spark a little bit of joy into our lives. As we look to celebrate Twos Day with Activities and Worksheets it’s a cool way to see all the two’s around us. As we look around our classrooms, outside and at home we see pairs of everything this is a great way to get our students showing what they know by skip counting by 2’s.
For teachers specifically, special days and celebrations REALLY help break up the monotony of the school year.
Winter brings a lot of extra special days and holidays, starting with the holiday season in December and continuing throughout February. We love exploring these colder months with these Winter Activities and the giggles are endless when we play Winter Bingo.
Heck, we love special days at school so much that we even celebrate days that the rest of the world don’t celebrate, such as the 100th Day of School with our adorable glasses to mark the day.
Any out-of-the-ordinary day that we can bring in new themes and topics to make our students more excited and engaged in their learning is a definite “YES!” in the teacher universe.
And that is why, everywhere you look right now, you’ll see and hear about “Twos-Day,” otherwise known as this coming February 22nd, 2022.
Not only do all of the “twos” align, but it also falls on a Tuesday. How exciting! Who knows, maybe this will become a new tradition for every February 2nd and/or 22nd to come!
So naturally, with such an exciting day on the calendar heading our way, teachers are planning to celebrate and teach everything that has to do with the number “two” on that day. Doubles, pairs, skip counting by 2s… we want it all!
If you’re looking for more ways to incorporate holidays into your learning, take a look at this Animal Studies Holiday Bundle. Using holidays to dig into science gets our students learning without realizing they’re learning.
Games, Activities, and Worksheets for Twos-Day
We came up with some awesome resources and ideas for you to use this “Twos-Day.” The excitement will fill your classroom as you search the room for pairs, play concentration games, make party hats, and play skip counting by 2’s board games. It will be a day you and your students will surely remember for years to come!
You will definitely want to take a class picture after you make these adorable Twos Day Hats, because who doesn’t love a good hat for a celebration? Simple and easy to color, cut, and attach to a sentence strip.
Your students will love practicing skip counting by 2 with our Counting by 2s Board Game. All they need is the game board, spinner, paperclip, and pencil, and they will be learning number sense with this counting activity in no time.
Set your students up with a familiar game of concentration/memory with our Twos Day Pairing Cards, where they have to match the two things that go together (think peanut butter and jelly, a dog and a bone.) This will have your students making connections and word associations, all while having a blast.
Create a little bit of independent work with our Twos Day Pairs picture search, where students will have to look closely to find and circle all of the pairs on their paper. Once all the pairs are found kids can practice skip counting by 2’s to see how many pairs they found.
Set up a “Twos-Day” write the room activity with this “We Go Together Like” scavenger hunt, where students will go searching around the room for the part of each pair that is missing.

Books to Read on Twos-Day
We love reading “Tuesday” by David Wiesner for an interesting wordless picture book that will have your students giggling! They will love using their imagination to tell the story and brainstorm what happens next when the story is finished.
Help your students master the skill of doubling with Double Play by Betsy Franco. Your students will love learning alongside Jill and Jake as they practice their addition and problem solving skills.
Another story that is “double the fun” is Double the Ducks by Stuart J. Murphy. This story will teach your littlest learners the skill of doubling numbers, all while hearing a wonderful tale of friendship and feisty little ducks!
Your older students might connect more with the story “Minnie’s Diner: A Multiplying Menu” by Dayle Ann Dodds. In this humorous story, some hard working brothers come into the diner looking for some food, but each boy wants DOUBLE what the previous boy had. Your students will learn about doubling as the foundational skill in multiplication.
