Skip counting worksheets
Skip Counting is an important skill for young learners. It allows them to group numbers and quickly count forwards and backwards. They will use this skill to solve addition, subtraction, multiplication and division problems in future math. These skip counting worksheet pages not only work on counting by 2, 5, and 10, they also help kids learn about stars and the constellations they make in the night sky too. Preschoolers, kindergartners, and grade 1 students will complete the connect the dots to form pegasus, orion, big dipper, little dipper, Aquila, and hercules. This is such a fun way to work on 2 skills at once – skip counting activity and solar system activity too!
Whether you are a parent, teacher, or homeschooler – you will love that this activity is no prep! This is great for summer learning, match centers, science centers, space themes, and extension activities.
