Skip Counting Worksheet
Are your students learning how to skip count by 2, 5 and 10? These numbers are typically the first intervals students learn to skip count. After practising this skill, why not give them a chance to show what they know! This maths worksheet can be a homework assignment, reteaching worksheet, or assessment to add to your skip counting unit.
This double-sided worksheet includes four different skip counting charts to fill in. Students have an opportunity to skip count by 2, 5 and 10. Each skip counting chart begins with a different number for students to practise this skill. To complete this activity, students will look at the given numbers, fill in the missing blanks, and then circle which number they skip counted by.
An answer key is included with your download to make grading fast and easy!
