Spring and skip counting just fits, don’t you think?  Spring is the time of year that I actually feel like skipping.  Something about the freshness or it all.  I really do like spring and I feel that’s fairly common.  As a kid, I always knew spring had arrived when I’d come home and my mom would have cleaned the whole house and left the windows open.  The smell in the house that day was warm and soft and light.

Skip counting doesn’t bring quite the same feeling but it is one of those tasks that practice makes progress.  So I like to have a lot of skip counting practice activities!

It is day 3 of the 6 days of Spring printables!  I still have a lot more to share – including a full 5 day spring unit study from toddler to 4th grade.  It will be sent to my newsletter subscribers first, so make sure you’re on there!

Setting Up the Spring Skip Counting

I try to cut these up before handing them over.  I like them to rely on skip counting at least a little bit before solving the puzzle!  If they see the picture first, it kind of ruins that.

So I cut them up and hand them over in stacks.

Regular paper is just fine for these puzzles!  If you want to use them over and over you’ll probably want to laminate them.  Otherwise, don’t bother.  They work fine on regular paper.

If you want to display the puzzle when it’s completed (or keep for a portfolio) then I’d suggest gluing it down on a piece of construction paper.  It looks nice that way too!

How to Use the Spring Skip Counting

We typically use puzzles like these for practice.  We practice skip counting when first learning how to skip count and again when memorizing multiplication facts.  If they have trouble, I’ll give them a 100s chart and we will color the pattern first.  Or use fingers (or any manipulatives).
