We've been working on skip counting by 10s with 3-digit numbers. To my surprise, my students are doing great. I'm pretty sure the reason why is because it's taken us a long time to reach this point. We've been using a new pacing guide this year and I'm seeing amazing results because of it. If you're interested, click here to download a free sample.

Here's a fun game we played to practice skip counting by 10s:

I made about ten different sets of numbers like these and gave one set to each pair of students. When I gave the set to each group I made sure the numbers were mixed up. Their job was to unscramble the set of numbers and tell me what the pattern was. (I had a little chit-chat with the yellow group after I took the picture. Did you notice a few of their numbers are in the wrong spot?)

Once they got the hang of that, I made it a bit more difficult.

I had one student remove a number and their partner had to figure out which number was missing. At first, they left a space where the number was removed, but then they pushed the cards together so you couldn't see where the missing number was (this was actually their idea).

thanks for the sheet. i will use it to differentiate my math groups.
