Getting Some Skip Counting In

We're just entering our 4th Marking Period. {So jealous of all of you who are done in May} And well, we realized we have more skills to cram in teach during the last quarter than we thought we did.

One of those skills is skip counting to 1,000 per the new Common Core Standards. Since we are doing Terra Nova testing during the morning all week, we decided to devote our math block this week to a few of those 4th Quarter skills we don't anticipate taking a long time. Notice we said anticipate…who knows what tomorrow will bring!


I whipped up a *few* skip counting worksheets for counting by 2s, 5s, and 10s up to 1,000. {Actually, I went over 1,000 a few times…hey, you never know!}



We'll work on these tomorrow after skip counting as a whole class, in small groups, and in pairs. We even play "Skip Count Around the World", which they LOOOOOOVE, but I think is only okay because once one of my little guys is out, they're not paying much attention to the rest of the group. But we'll play a round, or two.

Here are the sheets. I hope you can use them, share them, whatever! And if you do, please leave us a note letting us know.

  1. Thanks for stopping by and following my blog! I love your skip counting set. I also entered fourth quarter in a panic because I had more content that I have time for! But . . . I am one of those people you hate who will be done in May! . . . However, I also go back in July! :)

  2. These look great! Thank you for sharing! =)

    We play a game like that with skip counting. When they are out, their job is to count ahead to see who will sit out next...they love trying to figure that out! =)
