Skip Counting by 10’s is a kindergarten activity.  In the CCSS Skip counting becomes an official unit of study in 2nd grade. Here are 10 ideas to teach and practice skip counting in different ways. Remember that you want to make sure that students understand the quantity that is associated with the count, so that your students are not just “skip chanting” with no conceptual understanding of what they are actually doing!

Example 1 (a yummy math center)

Example 2 (ladder)

Example 3 (skip counting sticks)

Example 4 (frames and arrows)

Example 5 (counting squares)

Example 6 (number counting printables)

Example 7 (skip counting necklace)

Example 8 (cup counting center)

Example 9 (poster ideas)

Example 10 (using bingo blotters)

Happy Mathing,

Dr. Nicki
