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.

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.
