FREE SKIP COUNTING POSTERS

Teaching children how to skip count builds their number sense, helps them learn how to quickly count on from a given number (4 more than 16 is 20, for example) and begins developing their ability to multiply and divide.

These free skip counting posters are great to use during whole class instruction or as a helpful reminder to display on the wall.
