Skip Counting Puzzles

Do your students need help with skip counting? These skip counting puzzles are a fabulous way to help your students master skip counting.Do your students need help with skip counting and getting past skip counting barriers? These skip counting puzzles are a fabulous way to help your students master skip counting by 2’s, 3’s, 4’s, 5’s and 10’s.

Skip counting is an essential skill as it helps kids develop fluency in calculation and is the basis for multiplication and division.

I love watching kids learning to play with numbers, but I’ve noticed that there are specific areas where they tend to get stuck.

Difficulties students encounter when learning to skip count:

  • Moving beyond place value barriers (for example getting past 100 when counting by 10s).
  • Starting to count at any number that’s not a multiple. For instance, once students can count in 10’s starting at 10 or 20 or 50. Can they count in 10’s starting at 12 or 33?
  • Being able to skip count both forwards and backward at any number.

Skip counting puzzles are another fun and engaging way to practice skip counting to get kids past their skip counting barriers.

This set includes 50 skip counting puzzles for multiples of two, three, four, five and ten. The set consists of different puzzles that cover all of the barriers mentioned above.

10 – 100; 10 – 120; 40 – 150; 13 – 103; and 27 – 137.
