We’ve been using these Skip Counting Drill Sheets from Lilliput Station, a free download over on Currclick.
Skeeterbug fills out one line on this sheet every day. Then he reads the numbers to me. Next he flips his paper over and recites as much as he can. By the time he gets to the bottom of the sheet he should be getting close to having it memorised.
If he still needs some work, we use this next sheet. Really the only difference is that the squares are smaller. He fills out two rows a day and recites the numbers from memory. By the time he’s done with this one he’s got it down. It works out to a couple of weeks per number. I may try to speed this up, but even if I don’t we will have all of them done this year. Every once in a while we go back and review the other numbers he has memorised.
I’ve also printed out these skip counting charts from Homeschool Creations. She recently updated them to go up to 15. We will be memorising that high, so I’m glad she did this. I won’t mention how I had painstakingly created my own version that looked just like hers before she posted her update. Just. won’t. mention. the time I spent on it.
I hang these up on a bulletin board in our school room for reference. I also printed them out two-to-a-page and bound them into a little book. I pull it out when we start a new number. The drill sheets from Currclick only go up to 12, so I will eventually create some up to 15. The file also includes many different versions of hundred charts to fill in.
