This unit on skip counting contains printable and digital material specifically designed for students with special learning needs, especially autism in elementary school.


This unit includes 2 different levels of activities that focus on:

  • Using a number line for skip counting
  • Using a hundred board for skip counting
  • Fill in missing numbers in a skip counting sequence
  • Arranging a set of numbers in a skip counting sequence


2 learning levels:

  • Level 1: students circle answers and color-coding added when needed
  • Level 2: students fill in/write missing numbers


5 group activities:

  1. Making a human number line to practice a skip counting sequence
  2. Using large numbers lines as a group to practice a skip counting sequence
  3. Using large and fifty and hundred boards to practice a skip counting sequence
  4. Skip counting puzzles (color and black and white)
  5. Using manipulatives to create groups and then practice a skip counting sequence


There are many opportunities for students to engage in repeated information on understanding how to skip count using various manipulatives. This repetition encourages a true understanding of the material.


Finally, students will practice skip counting by: 2’s, 3’s, 5’s, 7’s, and 10’s.

Much of what I have learned about curriculum development is incorporated in these activities. For example, do not be afraid of repetition. It is critical that students with significant disabilities get to experience material over several days to be able to fully assimilate what is being taught. Also, adding visual supports to your printables and class activities helps students be able to pay more attention to the content you are presenting rather than the mechanics of what is expected. Finally, ask questions. Good questions!! Regardless of the material, if we can ask students good questions it will push them to think more deeply than before.
