Counting in five the kinaesthetic way...

Honi, my five year old, was struggling to count in fives today, she was getting so frustrated so I scratched my head and thought of a different way.  This way...

All you need is some chalk write out counting in 5's in a way that is possible but fun to jump from one to the other and get jumping.  If you don't get it right, no worries just start again! 
This was my Honi's 20th or so attempt she LOVED it...

Have fun trying it out yourself!
