What educators are saying

I absolutely LOVE this product. It was fun watching the kids hop around while skip counting by 5's. I plan on using this a lot. The kids had fun and were very engaged.
Teaching students with ADHD so injecting movement as much as possible is essential to learning and engagement.


Let's Get Hopping!

Skip Counting by 2's, 3's 5's and 10's

This is a lesson plan on skip counting for a whole group or small group. Students will play a skip counting game to help learn the art of skip counting. This game can be used with Kindergarten- 2nd. It can also be used for special education, as it uses movement, visual and auditory learning. You can modify which parts you use with the students. It is also appropriate for a homeschool setting.

Students will use kinesthetic and visual modalities to learn skip counting. Students will use colors and movement to build a concrete understanding of skip counting.

You tape the numbers to the floor and students will use a frog manipulative to help cue the numbers to skip count. Each frog has the matching color to the skip counting lily pads. Students will jump on green circle's under the lily pads to skip count by 2's.

After skip counting by 2’s, you can move on to 3’s, 5’s, or 10’s. This is up to the ability of the students in your classroom.

You will tape the blue, purple, or yellow circles under the white lily pads. This way, students can see which numbers overlap when skip counting by different numbers.

All base lily pads are white. There are different colored circles to place under the lily pads, so students can visually and kinesthetically experience the differences in skip counting different numbers.

Students should be aware of the differences in the amount of lily pads that you skip.

Mostly, have fun hopping like frogs and learning to skip count!!

Students can complete extension worksheets to practice skip counting and to see the numbers laid out in a different framework.

There are 2 100’s and 120's chart activities for each set of skip counting.

In one, students will skip count by 2’s and color the numbers green. Students can check their work on the lily pads on the floor.

In the other, students will fill in the numerals to skip count by 2’s.

There is one more extension activity. It is to fill in the numerals on the lily pads. There is one worksheet with 2’s and 3’s and one with 5’s and 10’s.
