Before learning skip counting by sevens, be sure your child is well acquainted with counting by the previous numbers. Reinforce earlier lesson skills by chanting them out loud with your student. Time during a car ride can be spent practicing skip counting as well. Learn to work these "mini reviews" in casually and without pressure.

An Activity Worksheet

Although it's tempting to simply hand the printed worksheet to the student and tell her to fill it out . . . it becomes more desireable if she is allowed to cut and paste at the same time. The more time spent on the activity, the more likely she'll remember the numbers.

Have your child then paste each strip on brown construction paper (representing her "garden").

While the glue is drying, spend some time having her count each individual row outloud, which will impress the fact that each row contains seven tulips.

Now have her start at the beginning again - this time pausing to count up to 7 and write "7" in the first blank box.

Have the student continue to count the second row of tulips until she reaches 14 - and then write "14" in the box. Continue until all the boxes have been filled in.

Math Worksheets

Multiplication seems to be something that many pupils struggle with. If you can strive to make memorization of the basic multiplication tables more fun, most children can learn them without a problem.
