There are so many great summer themes. I love that you use so many during the summer. Today, I have some fun summer themed skip counting puzzles.
These puzzles are great for hands-on learning for kids of different ages. They are great for building different types of learning skills.
These puzzles are loads of fun. There are two sets of puzzles for kids to use. There are a vertical set and horizontal set. They all skip count by six 10 times on each puzzle. They go from 6 to 60 and 66 to 120.
Skip counting works well into multiplication and division learning. You can use a skip counting to help kids learn or practice multiplication and division.
I laminate each of the puzzles and the blank board in the set. Since I have several sets of puzzles I have a blank board all set up. It makes it easier to reuse. I put putty on the puzzles or the board. If we are just doing one puzzle, I do the puzzle pieces.
If we are doing several puzzles, I do it on the blank board. This time I just did the blank board. You can see an example of it on the puzzles pieces here.
How we use these puzzles
First I start with the puzzles that start with 6. They put the puzzles together. I have them say the numbers as they put it together.
After the puzzles are together I have them count the numbers on the puzzle. They point to the numbers on the puzzle as they say the numbers.
Another fun activity I do is to put the puzzle together in the wrong order on the board and have them fix it.
