# Skip Count by 5's using Sequences, Objects and Number Charts

After learning to count by 2s, second graders now learn to count by 5s. This skill paves the way for building an understanding of multiplication in the higher grades. This fun skip counting game is a form of an interactive worksheet. It utilizes sequences, objects and number charts to engage children and illustrate the concept.

What’s inside?

- Count on and back by 5s within 1000 on a hundreds chart.

- Fill in the missing values in a count-by-5s number sequence.

- Count the total number of objects in groups of 5 by skip counting by 5s.

- Apply the concept to learn the relationship between cents and nickels.

Real-World Application

Helping children learn to count by 5s not just prepares them for multiplication, but also helps them expand their field of view beyond the immediate next numbers. Children find it easier to tell time to five minutes - they are able to relate the numbers on an analog clock with multiples of 5 fluently. Similarly, they can easily count coins and understand the relationship between cents and nickels.

What’s next?

After learning to count to 5s, children move on to learn to count by 10s.
