Skip Counting by 5's

2nd - 4th

In this skip counting activity, students skip count by the number 5 in each problem. Students complete 5 problems total on this activity.

Resource Details

Can you skip count? Then you can multiply!

Third graders practice the skill of skip counting while being introduced to the concept of multiplication. They will use interlocking cubes to represent the action of multiplying. Then they will be introduced to the symbols and notation of multiplication through a chant and corresponding movements. Songs and chants are included as well as a rubric.

Counting Circles II

Fill those extra ten minutes of math time with this fun counting activity. Given a short sequence of numbers, young mathematicians stand in a circle and count one-by-one until the last number is reached, at which point the whole group claps and the last child has a seat in the middle of the circle. The rest of the group then repeats the process until only one person is left standing. The flexibility of this activity allows teachers to choose number sequences that focus on specific trouble spots, or that introduce students to skip counting and counting backward. This quick and simple activity can be performed anytime, anywhere and engages primary grade learners in developing this fundamental math skill.

Skip Counting to Music

Your youngest mathematicians skip count by 2's, 5's, and 10's as they sing along to a Hap Palmer song that helps them remember the patterns. Students practice in whole group and then individually with the worksheet provided, using the song to review and revise their worksheets. Adapt to kindergarten by assessing orally instead of in writing.

Skipping Into Multiplication

Young mathematicians study the relationship between skip counting and multiplication. They build on skip counting skills and examine arrays while studying multiplication. Resources are provided.

Skip Counting by P5's and P10's

Second graders skip count by 5s and 10s up to 50.  In this skip counting lessons, 2nd graders collaborate to solve money related word problems using coins. 

Balloon Bop: Skip Counting

Practice counting in patterns and skip counting by 1, 5, and 10. Once the patterns have been taught, teams of 5 or 6 learners -- holding hands in circles -- skip count each time they collectively bounce a balloon up into the air. Early primary collaborative learning at its best: children must work together, and they get to move and play. 

Pass the Paper- Skip Counting Cooperative Activity

Students demonstrate skip counting. In this early math lesson, students bounce a ball and skip count in unison as a warm-up. Students then work in groups to skip count until they reach on hundred.

Solve Multiplication Problems: Using Skip Counting

Explore yet another use of number lines as young mathematicians learn to answer multiplication problems by skip counting. This problem solving approach is clearly modeled with the examples presented in the third video of this series. Young learners demonstrate their understanding of this method by solving the additional word problem included in the Guided Practice video. A great resource that supports students as they become familiar with their multilication facts.

Skip Counting

Students practice the skill of skip counting. In this early math lesson, students try counting at different rates, beinning at one and progressing to the number ten. Students create a number grid with Crayola Crayons.

Pass the Paper - Skip Counting Cooperative Activity Math Lesson Plan

Here is an engaging game that encourages skip counting. In this math lesson, learners engage in a group activity which requires each group to skip count to 100 using different values.

The lessons are so well laid out and comprehensive, it is a delight to be able to plug them in to my curriculum. Working within an alternative school, I need to provide my students with clear and specific information, links, and directions. Lesson Planet helps me find it all. Thank you so much!
