Skip Counting by 2s and 3s

Students mastering their skip counting skills will benefit from these task cards. The cards include the same set of four numbers but with one number missing. This makes it easier for kids to count on from the designated number (e.g: 2 count on 2 is 4).

I like getting the kids to clap as they skip count their numbers. So instance skip counting by 2’s we add two each time. We clap two times to count on 2 to find the next number, 4. So, 3 clap, 4 clap. This helps kids visualize the numbers and gives them plenty of practice to help them develop their understanding of skip counting.

This activity includes skip counting cards by 2 and 3. Each set of four cards with the same number sequence but with a number missing from the sequence.
