The Importance of Skip Counting
Skip counting seems like one of those skills that isn’t very important or doesn’t have a whole lot of use. But when it comes to multiplication or telling time, skip counting can be very handy.
It is a skill worth working on.
When it comes to math, I believe in giving kids a chance to play with numbers. Being able to manipulate numbers and use different skills to accomplish different tasks gives kids a deeper understanding of math. There are usually multiple ways to accomplish one problem and the kids who figure out the other ways are the ones who play with numbers.
What’s Included in this Skip Counting Set?
I love having some themed sets for different activities. This set includes 6 different activities for practicing skip counting by 2s, 3s, 5s, and 10s.
There are clip cards for skip counting that include pictures that illustrate the numbers. For example, the 2s in this set are apple seeds. The pictures start with 2 seeds, then 4, 6, 8, and 10. These clip cards are a great introduction because even kids who haven’t worked on skip counting can figure out the answer.
Skip Counting Mazes
These skip counting mazes are a great way to practice skip counting. Each maze ends at a different point. And they all end at a pretty high number ensuring that the kids who use these mazes are truly understanding the skip counting method.
