Free Skip Counting Printables!

Happy Friday, y'all! I've been working on some printable resources to help engage my boys as we learn to skip count. I thought I'd share them here in case anyone else may find them helpful! As a part of our homeschool curriculum we learn to skip count through the 15's in order to help develop fluency in math calculations. Skip counting is the basis of multiplication and division, and having these facts memorized aids in mental math. It's no wonder Classical Conversations teaches math skip counting every single cycle! 

Below are links to 5 printable skip counting worksheets. I've laminated my copies to keep them safe as we play with them. I hope to get the 7's through the15's up very soon!

 skip counting worksheets

Examples of how to use these --> use lego figures to jump into the 2's pool, use gummy worms to catch the fish at the bottom of the sea of 3, use hot wheel cars to whirl through the 4's track, use play-doh to put fruit on the tree of 5's, use goldfish crackers to fly through the whale's blowhole. 

You will find links to print these down below. I recommend choosing "scale to fit" or "fit to page" on your printer when printing to ensure that nothing gets cut off!

Happy Skip Counting!
