In a collection of maths teaching resources aimed at Year 1 students, the concept of counting in 2s is introduced as a key part of understanding number and place value. The resources provide a step-by-step guide to help children practise skip counting by twos up to the number 20. This skill is foundational for understanding even numbers and is an essential building block for future mathematical learning. The materials include a PowerPoint presentation that visually aids the learning process, showing sequences of numbers and encouraging children to identify the pattern of adding 2 to the previous number to continue the sequence.

To reinforce the concept, various worksheets are included that engage students in counting in 2s in different contexts. One activity involves counting socks as they appear on a line, making the learning experience more interactive and relatable. Another worksheet asks students to fill in the missing numbers in a sequence, thereby testing their ability to apply the counting in 2s rule. Through these exercises, children are encouraged to vocalise the number sequence and to recognise the pattern of even numbers, which is a crucial aspect of their numerical development. The resources are designed to be both educational and enjoyable, ensuring that the children remain engaged while they learn to count in 2s efficiently.
