Skip Count 5’s, 10’s, and 100’s

Why teach kids to skip count?

The math concept of “skipping count,” which is also called “counting by intervals” or “counting by twos, fives, or tens,” is important for children to learn because it helps them understand how numbers relate to each other. Skip counting helps kids improve their math skills and lays the groundwork for more complex math concepts they will learn as they age. For example, if a child knows how to skip count by twos, they can easily find the sum of two even numbers by adding two to the previous number in the series. This skill is also helpful for solving word problems and understanding place value, which is an important concept in base ten arithmetic.
