How To Skip Count By (5s, 10s, 100s)? Addition, subtractions, and multiplication of numbers get simpler when kids know the art of skip counting. Skip counting is one of the most useful mathematical techniques that can help kids excel in concepts of addition, subtraction, and multiplication. When we say count by 2s, 5s, 10s, or even 100s, we are referring to skip counting. Learning this skill will help kids count many things quickly without stressing out and even help them learn multiplication tables. Skip counting involves adding the same number over and over. Normal counting is simply adding one to get the next number. Kids can take help from a number line to better understand skip counting. Counting by 5s Learning to count by 5s can help kids read the numbers on the clock easily. To learn to count by 5s, one has to understand the pattern; 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, … , 90, 95, 100 Counting by 10s The easiest skip counting is to count by 10s. For normal counting, one simply has to add one to get the next number. To count by 10s you have to do the same, except there is an extra zero. 10, 20, 30, … , 80, 90, 100 Counting by 100s Counting by 100s is just like counting by 1s and 10s. You need to add one with an extra two zeros to get the next number. 100, 200, 300, … , 800, 900, 1000 Students learn how to do chunk or skip counting with these worksheets for three different denominations of values.
