Skip Counting Mazes

Good morning! I have some fun free math worksheets for you today! Strawberry Shortcake was so interested in the Kindergarten Number Mazes that I made for Tinker Bell, that she asked for some skip counting worksheets so she could practice her multiplication tables!

Excuse me?

Did you just ask for more math worksheets?

Be still my heart.

Skip counting practice is something we do often. One thing we LOVE are the Skip Counting songs from Math U See. The songs are really cute and catchy, and it has definitely helped with our memorization. Tinker Bell has already memorized half of her multiplication tables without even realizing it! She’s the singer in our family…she automatically absorbs just about any songs we play while we do school so I use it to my advantage.

I’m tricky that way.

So anyway, Strawberry Shortcake was in the depths of multiplication this year, and I’m game for anything I can do to help her memorize her tables while at the same time making it more fun! And of course I’m not one to say “no” to more math practice, so just ask and you shall receive!

This download includes skip counting for numbers 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11 and 12 all in a fun maze format.

There are a lot of different ways to use these sheets, here are a few ideas to help you get started:

  • Use highlighters or markers to color each square
  • Laminate and use dry-erase markers to complete the maze (Mazes can then be re-used)
  • Use with do-a-dot markers (I’m really going to have to send this company a big “THANK YOU”! My kiddos will do almost anything if a do-a-dot marker is involved!)
  • Place sheet on a magnetic board and use pom-pom magnets, or colorful button magnets
  • Use cheerios, gold fish, M&Ms, raisins, or any other edible manipulative, then eat your completed maze!

 

Here is a sample of one of the worksheets, your student will start at the bunny and skip count by whatever number is on the worksheet until they help him reach his carrot. And like I said…try the do-a-dot markers, they have magical motivational powers in our home!

Oh yeah, before I forget…a kind reader commented awhile back saying you can get bingo dabbers for really cheap at the dollar store. Do-a-dot marker vs bingo dabber…same thing only less expensive! I’m hoping they’re a dollar. It annoys me when things aren’t $1 at the Dollar Store!

    This is awesome!!! Thanks for sharing. I’ve got 3 kidds, 5th (who needs a refresher course in his multiplying facts) 3rd grader who is about to get throw into the multiplying den) and a Ker who wants to do anything her brothers are doing…. so I’m hoping she will just catch on by “playing” along!!!!! Can’t wait to print off and laminate and I think we will have to go with the m&ms!!!!

    Love this idea too. Thanks for posting. I believe our Dollar Tree sells the bingo dabbers for $1.

    Thank you again, Erica! These will fit perfectly with our skip counting memory work in Classical Conversations!

    Ditto to what Erin said! Our family does Classical Conversations and the kids memorize skip counting songs. This will be such a great supplement/review for them. I have found that skip counting has made the transition from adding/subtracting to multiplying so much easier. And mazes to review is so great–thank you!

    Oh my! These are PERFECT for my 2nd grader! Not only can he work on skip counting, but he can use my grandmother’s bingo dotters that he always wants to play with, lol!

    As always, thanks so much for sharing! 🙂

    Thank you so much for these, Erica. A fellow Classical Conversation mother (Erin, posted earlier) let us know about this wonderful resource of yours. I am excited to try this out at home for my daughter as we review our math memory work. I just joined your blog as well – I hear wonderful things about your work and we used your Orchestra lapbooks in our CC group last year – very nice and my first lapbook experience. Keep the great ideas coming!
