Teach Your Kids ‘Skip Counting’

August 31, 2018

1 min read

There’s more than one way to count to 100. You can take the long way, starting with the number one. Or you can also count by twos, tens, twenties, even fifties to get there faster.

That’s what’s known as skip counting, and it’s a useful concept to teach your children. It can help them increase their fluency in counting and adding sums, and boost their confidence in making transactions with money.

What your kids will learn

In this activity, your kids will learn to skip count. It’s an important skill to master, as it’s the precursor to developing fluency in calculation, number sense, and it’s the basis for multiplication and division—not to mention counting money. Skip counting is a suitable skill for kids in kindergarten through third grade.
