# Fall Themed Skip Counting Strips: Apples & Pumpkins

Skip counting is a skill that works int to many different areas. You use it for repeat addition and multiplication. It is a great way to start with one math area and work in another math area.

The fall skip counting trips are a great way to work on these skills. They come in apples and pumpkins for the fall!

I always get requests for more skip counting and these are one fun way to do skip counting for the fall.

This is a great addition to the skip counting printables on the site.

## What is Skip Counting?

Skip counting is counting forward or backward by a number other than 1.

So that would be like skip counting by 2 and you would have the numbers 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 etc.

A lot of skip counting is also part of repeat addition and multiplication.

You skip count four times by two 2, 4, 6, 8. You get eight as the ending number. It is the same as 2+2+2+2=8 or 2×4=8.

That is why these strips are so helpful. They have skip counting forward and backward.

Each theme has 4 skip counting strips for each number. It has numbers going forward and numbers going backward. This gives you two ways to work on skip counting.

I recommend printing these on cardstock and laminating them.

## Ways to use the Fall Skip Counting Strips

Since we have these laminated it is easy to just write the numbers write on the cards You can give them a mix of numbers to do

We have used the skip counting tiles with these as well. You can print the tiles on matching colored cardstock.

The first way to use them is to place them on the skip counting strips. You give them several of the matching numbers and have them use it.

You can also tape or glue the skip counting tiles on clothespins and have them clip the numbers on the cards.

I also like to keep these on rings so that we can work on the numbers we need. It is also a great way to store them.

Now if they need help with their skip counting you can always use the skip counting bookmarks with the skip counting strips.
