Space Skip Counting
These FREE printables are suitable for kindergarten or first grade. You can use in small groups, pair children up as partners or place in your math center.
Print the free sheets in color. Choose which sheets you want to print for working on skip counting in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s. Or print all 3!
How to Use
Start counting at the spaceship and move your space-themed manipulative from one star to the next as you count until you reach the moon. This is similar to a Dot-to-Dot activity, but using skip counting instead!
Using small manipulatives helps those who are not that proficient in skip counting yet and might loose their place. It helps with tracking too!

Another hands-on idea is to pack the “path” with the star buttons/erasers! This option is super fun PLUS it also develops those fine motor muscles- picking up small items and placing them júst right!
Small Group Play
Enlarge the printable and use large star stickers that are numbered the same as the printable.
Give the star stickers to the students to hold on to and count aloud as a group. The stars must then be placed on the right spot as the counting continue.
This develops concentration- having to listen and follow to the counting, and gives opportunity for the teacher to see which students need more practice.
