After labeling our chart together, each child got a blank copy of a 120 chart. We quickly skip counted and colored the tens along the way. Once everyone had their chart complete, they cut it into strips of 10 and made skip counting chains. You can grab a blank copy of this 120 chart here.
Once we mastered 10s, we started practicing counting by 5s. We made another anchor chart. This time, I traced each child’s hand and we labeled them together.
For extra practice, we made these fun skip counting hats using this printable from Smitten with First. You can grab the hand printable on her blog. The kids counted by 5s and wrote the number on each hand and then glued them around a sentence strip to make a hat. We kept them at school all week to wear and use as a reference.
Up next was counting by 2s and we all know that this is the hardest for them to get. We started out by making another anchor chart. I gave each of them a pair of eyes and we labeled them together as we added them to our chart.
