What is Skip Counting? Skip counting is simply counting numbers by skipping more than one number in between. In skip counting, you need to skip the same count every time. If you are skip counting by 2s, then every time you need to count every second number. If you are skip counting by 3s, you will count the third number each time. Skip counting includes either counting forward by a number more than one or backward counting by a number more than 1. For instance, if you are skip counting by 2, it will appear like this: 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14... Skip counting by 5s will look like this: 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30.... Skip counting is one of the earliest methods of multiplication. Teaching skip counting can help children to hone basic numerical skills. Skip counting is helpful in different basic tasks, like dealing with money and telling time. Moreover, skip counting by 2s, 3s, 5s, and other multiples help children in doing addition, subtraction and multiplication efficiently and quickly. Mastering this early numeral skill is essential in excelling the advanced mathematical skills. These worksheets teach students to skip ahead by counting by threes.
