These skip counting songs are a great back up for learning multiplication tables. I have taught countless children (ESL, students with disabilities, at-risk students, and gen. ed.) these songs as a way to multiply. The each have a tune and I sing that for you (or your students can access it) on educreation - there is a link in the first page. The songs are fun and easy to learn. 3's, 4's to row, row, row your boat, 6's mary had a little lamb, 7's & 8's. If traditional memorization just isn't working or additional strategies for memorizing are needed... these will work!

The act of counting by a number other than one is known as skip counting. As an illustration, skip counting by twos would be (2, 4, 6, 8, 10, etc.). Early exposure to skip counting is crucial for children's development of their number sense and builds the groundwork for more advanced mathematical ideas.

Skip counting is a great way to teach kids about the patterns that can be found in numbers. Children who skip count begin to understand that some numbers have a consistent pattern. When counting by fives, for instance, they will rapidly realize that all other numbers either finish in 5 or 0. When students learn about factors, multiples, and other mathematical concepts in the future, this comprehension of patterns will benefit them.

Furthermore, skip counting is a crucial step before multiplication. Children effectively practice their multiplication tables when they skip count by a certain number. For instance, saying "3 times 1 is 3, 3 times 2 is 6, 3 times 3 is 9, etc." is equivalent to counting in threes. Children are more prepared to master multiplication and division later on when they have a firm grasp of skip counting.

Skip counting is essential in daily life as well. For instance, skip counting can make the procedure quicker and more effective if you need to swiftly count a large number of things. When kids learn about more difficult concepts later, this knowledge of patterns will be helpful. Understanding numerical patterns can also be useful for tasks like timekeeping and money handling.

In general, learning to skip count is a crucial ability that kids should acquire at a young age. They gain a better understanding of numbers, are better prepared for harder arithmetic ideas, and may even find application for it in daily life. As a teacher, I would advise my pupils to constantly practice skip counting and make sure they have a firm grasp of the mathematical patterns that are there.
