Skip Counting Charts are a great way to help your child learn their numbers and mentally count in their mind. These printable skip charts are great for early learners!
Before I had kids, I had no idea what skip counting was. Little did I know, I actually did. When I’m counting money or other objects, it’s easier to use the skip counting technique. I just didn’t realize there was a name for it. It is fun for kids to learn to count in general, but it makes my heart happy to see how excited my kids get when they count by 2’s, 4’s, or 10’s. The easiest way that I have realized to teach my kids how to use the skip counting technique is to show them on charts. These Skip Counting Charts are the perfect way to teach kids how to skip count where they truly understand it as well.

There is no wrong way to use these Skip Counting Charts but we have a few favorites.
To note, this Skip Counting Charts pack contains skip cards for all the numbers 2 through to ten. Each chart goes from 1 to 100. For each different skip counting spacing, the numbers are colored differently. So for counting by 2’s, the squares holding numbers 2, 4, 6, etc. are colored whereas the other numbers are black and white. This is a super helpful reference on which numbers are which. Also, each page has a different color so that children will be able to decipher the difference on their own.
For use in our home, I laminated each of the charts. I do this for a few reasons. Lamination will keep the charts strong for the many years we will use these for multiple kids. Laminating them also allows the charts to be used with play dough, slime, and more. We also use mini erasers or other manipulatives with these charts.
Skip Counting Charts – Did You Know?
Skip counting is a great way to introduce children to the basic concepts of multiplication. It provides a great foundation for them. Once they have these facts learned, they are able to move onto more complex multiplication problems.
Besides the filled charts, I created only partially completed Skip Counting Charts. We like to laminate these also so that they can be used over and over with dry-erase markers. These are helpful for reiterating the numbers that should be included in each skip counting set.
There is also a black and white version, where the skip counting is colored in a light grey color.
You will get skip counting by 2’s, 3’s, 4’s, 5’s, 6’s, 7’s, 8’s, and 9’s.
