Description

Strengthen number awareness with our Skip Counting Lesson Plan.  This interactive lesson demonstrates how to to skip count to 100, by twos, threes, fours, and fives. The students will also be able to identify the missing numbers during skip counting.  Engage collaborative learning as the class practices skip counting in unison and reinforce the practical application as students use manipulatives to practice skip counting by 2, 3, 4 or 5.

Classroom Procedure Sample:

  1. Have all students stand in the back of the room, choose one student at a time to come to the front of the room, counting as you are doing it. Do this until all students are standing at the front of the room. Have students return to the back of the room.
  2. Repeat the procedure, but count by twos, pointing to two students at a time to come to the front of the room. Do this until all students are standing at the front of the room. Students return to the back again. (If it is not even, simply having the extra student(s) come to the front each time as well.)
  3. Repeat two more times, counting by fours and then by fives. (During each time, be sure both, all 3, 4, or 5 students come to the front of the room together.)
  4. After all procedures are completed, ask students which procedure took the least amount of time to move to the front of the room. Was it counting by 2s, 3s, 4s, or 5s?
  5. Allow for responses and discussion.
  6. Display for students how skip counting works: By 2s, add 2 each time; by 3s, add 3 each time; etc. Use the white board, display board, or similar display method.
  7. Tell students they are going to learn to count faster by “Skip Counting”.
  8. Distribute Handout: Skip Counting 2,3,4,5
  9. Have the entire class read each skip counting line together.
  10. Distribute chips, toothpicks, or other items for students to count by 2, 3, 4, or 5. (You may have students do this alone or with a partner.)

Skip counting

I love all the lessons I have downloaded. I use them in a homeschool environment- my kids were not ready for counting by 3s and 4s but I will definitely use the rest of the lesson when we get ready. The videos were helpful.

Skip Counting my 2, 3, 4,5

Very good lessons for the general classroom, especially for introducing skip counting. It uses manipulatives to help reinforce and practice the concept.
