Counting To 100 By Ones and Tens Worksheets

This is just another form of skip counting. The difference from 2s and 5s is that it is a much larger jump for students. This is an important step towards being ready to multiply numbers. We give them some training wheels, at this point, by limited it to 100. Before you progress your students to this level, they should have the skill of counting to 100 mastered and by good skip counters. I always have had success working having my students skip count by 2s, 4s, 5s, and then progress to this section. This section of worksheets and lessons will help students learn to count by both ones and tens to one hundred. It is important to learn to skip count both forwards and backwards. This will help them a great deal when learning to do more complex operations like multiplication and division.

How to Count by Tens

Example Worksheet

Counting by tens is perhaps one of the easiest tasks for adults, but kids in their early age can face certain difficulties getting a solid grasp on the matter. Counting by tens can be one of the easiest ways of counting in bigger jumps such by hundred or thousand values. Let's learn how to count by 10.

Using graphical or visual aid can significantly help in ensuring that this skill is made easy. For example, consider a bundle of 10 sticks bound together. This implies that one bundle will be equal to 10, two bundles will be 20 and so on. In just ten iterations we can easily count up to 100.

The best way to tackle this is to learn the concept of place value. Counting by 10s is the same thing as standard counting. The only difference is that we are focused on the 10s place. That value increases by 1 each time we move forward in the pattern. The first progress in teaching this should start with a counting to 100 charts. Have them produce this chart and then circle 1s, then 2s, then 5s, then 10s. You can also use a calculator as a visual aid.

The Transition from Counting by Ones to Skipping by Tens

You find this to be one of the easier transitions in this skill. You find that students can get it pretty quickly. When you first begin teaching this skill to students, it would make sense to think that the larger the value, the more difficult the work. With this particular skill, it is just not true. I have taught kindergarten for eight years, at first, I had the same presumption, but I can tell you with confidence that this is not a worry at all. The transition to skipping by 3s and 5s is much more difficult for my kids. It makes a great deal of sense since our entire numeracy system is centered around base ten units. I find one of the best strategies to use with students, that will serve them well later in the curriculum is use a 100s counting chart and leave the tens column blank. This way students do not lose the concepts of all the values that are still there, they just skipped them. This provides students with a much more concrete concept in their mind. I would highly recommend using 100s charts to practice all denominations of skipping. I have them for all the skips from one to ten laminated in my room. I make them a regular math center. You might find this technique helpful for your students.
