Pumpkin Skip Counting by 2s, 5s, 10s

One of the hardest things to teach first graders is skip counting.  I started making this activity just for counting by 2s, but Christine gave me the idea to make it include counting by 5s and 10s as well.  It seems like we always have students on an intervention for skip counting and they need all the practice they can get.  We have done the skip counting cut apart cards for a few years where they cut apart the pumpkin cards with counts by 2 on them and then scramble them up and put them back in order.  I thought it would be a good idea to make some 100 grids to go along with this so they would have to write the counts by 2 and see the number grid pattern.  As a final activity I included the writing the skip counting through the pumpkin patch to use as an assessment.
You can find this activity at our TPT store HERE.
