Tweeting Twins
(skip counting by 2)
2 terrified twins, tweeted on twitter,
We’re trapped on the top of a tree!
Another 2 twins climbed quickly to help them,
Now there was one more than 3!
2 twins at the bottom wanted to help,
And climbed to the treetop so high,
Now how many twins were stuck in the tree?
Hanging so close to the sky?
2 older twins, saw the 6 twins,
Stuck up in the branches like fruits,
And helped those twins down,
One at a time, to help them they wore climbing boots!
Now how many twins were there at the bottom,
What is the total amount?
3 twins from the top and a pair that saved them,
Make 4 pairs of twins we should count...
Whenever I'm counting things like 2 twins,
What is the math that I use?
If things come in pairs like twins on a tree,
I'll choose to use counting by 2's...
Count by 2's when you're counting pairs of things like twins!
2, 4, 6, 8,10
Mr. R.'s count by 2's song! 

Now watch Mr. R.'s Count by 2's song to practice!

or watch Mr. R.'s count by 3 video!
