Lay the foundation for multiplication by introducing your second graders to the concepts of skip counting and repeated addition. This lesson can be used alongside Up, Up, and Array, or separately to reinforce these important skills.
Teach children that skip counting is when they count by a number other than one and that they can use skip counting to count numbers faster. This is also a useful strategy for solving multiplication problems! In these lesson plans, teachers find effective strategies and engaging examples for teaching students the basics of skip counting to solve multiplication problems.
