These printable centers and activities are designed to help teach skip counting by 2s, 5s and 1os.
We have created multiple ways for students to learn and practice their skip counting skills. Most of the resources can be used as math centers or independent work, but we have also included a class activity and a page that could be used as a pre and/or post assessment. Some of the resources reach up to 100, while others go all the way to 120. Use what works for your expectations and standards.
You will find the entire download of the resources described at the bottom of this post in BOLD letters.
Skip Counting Cards – These skip counting cards are meant to be laminated and cut apart for hands on practice. Twos, fives and tens have been created with different color numbers so that sorting at the end of work time is easy. You might think of using these with your small guided math groups or one-one-one work. Place a row of numbers in front of a student with certain numbers missing. Have the student choose from the cards you give them to fill in the missing numbers.
Skip Counting Work Mats – These mats come with three different background colors to distinguish between the twos, fives and tens. They have matching cards to laminate and cut out for each mat and they are designed with blank boxes for students to place the number cards in. We have also provided some additional numbers to make this more of a challenge for those students who are ready.
Skip Counting Hundreds Boards – These reusable mats are meant to be laminated. Students use Vis-a-Vis or dry erase markers to color the correct boxes and learn about the patterns associated with counting by twos, fives and tens.
What’s My Rule? – Again, these work mats are meant to be laminated for use with Vis-a-Vis or dry erase markers. There are three different versions and a challenge mat (denoted with stars at the top) for student use.
I Have…Who Has…? Game – This set of 30 cards is for when you want a whole class activity. There are 30 cards so that in most classrooms all students can have a card. (If you have less than 30, give some students two cards or you can read all the extras.)
Skip Counting Practice Pages – These pages include coloring hundreds boards, skip counting mazes and cut & paste activities. Nine pages in all that include twos, fives and tens.
I CAN Skip Count by 2s, 5s and 10s – This can be used as an additional practice page or a pre/post assessment for skip counting.
