Skip counting is a way to count by a certain number other than 1. It helps us count quickly and efficiently when dealing with larger numbers.

To skip count by 2, we start at a given number and then add 2 to get the next number. For example, if we start at 2, the next number will be 4, then 6, 8, and so on.

- It helps in learning multiplication.
- It helps in counting objects quickly.
- It makes it easier to understand patterns in numbers.

Let's practice skip counting by 5s: 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50...

By skip counting, we can quickly and easily count by 5s without having to count each number individually.

Count with understanding and recognize 'how many' in sets of objects.

Develop a sense of whole numbers and represent and use them in flexible ways, including relating, composing, and decomposing numbers.

Connections to the Grade 2 Focal Points (NCTM)

Algebra: Children use number patterns to extend their knowledge of properties of numbers and operations. For example, when skip counting, they build foundations for understanding multiples and factors.
