How Skip Counting Helps Begin to Learn to Multiply - Multiplication and division are two of the most essential elements that students need to learn in their early academic years in school as most of what is next is a derived or modified form of it. Skip counting helps you remember your counting and multiplications without using your calculator and fingers. You can do skip counting using sounds, tapping fingers on the desk or only fingers. So how can you use sounds to do skip counting. Using sounds for skip counting is easy, you keep reading the multiples loudly and leave everything else like one, TWO, three, FOUR, five, SIX, seven, EIGHT, nine, TEN and so on. Suppose you are doing multiple of Four then you would say it like: FOUR, five, six, seven, EIGHT, nine, ten, eleven, TWELVE, thirteen, fourteen, fifteen, SIXTEEN and so on. So, the idea here is to count all the numbers yet raise the volume on the desired number to train your brain for multiplication. You can also practice this method of skip counting using a Number Grid. This is a series of worksheets and lessons that help students begin to count ahead by values of five.
