Skip Counting Posters: Fun Activities and Ideas
Teaching your kids how to skip count doesn’t have to be painful or boring. Here are activities and ideas to make learning this important skill interesting:
Use a Calculator
Young kids have not yet been introduced to a calculator, so even your most basic calculator is exciting. Start with the number plus itself (Example: 3+3) and then continue to hit the equal (=) sign to add the number to the sum on the screen.
You can make skip counting a competitive game by having one kid use the calculator and the other doing the skip counting mentally. Race to see who can say the next number first.
This is also a fun exercise for your kids to do independently to check their own answers. I am going on a road trip in a couple of weeks and will be teaching my 2nd grader how to skip count 7 through 9 with this method!
Read Skip Counting Books
Do you have a bookworm at home? Teach your kids how to skip count by reading picture books filled with cute illustrations and engrossing storylines.
You can also look around for items at home to teach your kids, such as beans, paper clips, pom poms, or even twigs from your yard.
Play Skip Counting Hopscotch
Bring back the classic game of hopscotch and label the boxes with multiples. For example, the first box can be 2, then 4, next is 6, etc. This is a great way to get some exercise and spending time outside in the sun while learning math.
