Maths – Skip counting

My 6-year-old student loves numbers and counting, so these abstract skip counting exercises is something she can finish in two minutes. I only need to make sure she reads out the numbers she loudly as she is colouring the boxes. She doesn’t know that this is actually a preparation for her to memorize the multiplication table or chart.

Although kids will love to show off  their skip counting skill, make sure that they have worked a lot with concrete materials or Montessori’s skip counting beads. And even after they have coloured the boxes with craftsmanship expertise ;), hands on skip counting with beads and labels is still necessary. They can also work with the multiplication board now.
