Skip Counting by 2,3,4 and 5 Worksheet

Skip counting is often called counting by 2s or by 5s or by 10s or by 100s. Skip counting really helps with addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. It is also used a lot for counting things – counting pairs of gloves, groups of five, money, boxes with 100 cans in each box – the list goes on!

How to skip count

To skip count you add the same number over and over.

You can start at any number. When you count normally (like 1,2,3,4,5,6) you add 1 to get the next number. To count by 2s, you add 2 to get the next number.
