We usually start with counting by 2’s, 5’s, and
10’s. A lot of emphasis is given to this

Skip Counting Offers Valuable Multiplication Practice
Mastering the basic multiplication facts is a major component of elementary school mathematics education. Trying to memorize so many facts can be
challenging and frustrating for young learners.
It is important to provide early exposure and offer a wide variety of
strategies and activities to promote familiarity with the basic multiplication
facts. Skip counting practice lays an
early foundation for multiplication mastery.
Students don’t even need to be introduced to the concept of
multiplication to be able to skip count.
