Skip Counting by 5s From a Non-Zero Starting Point.

I am learning to skip count by 5s from any number.

I know I can do it when I am skip counting by 5s from any number.

Independent Task

You will need a book or some paper for this activity.

Starting from the numbers provided, you need to record (write down) the next 8 numbers in order, skip counting by 5 each time.


8 – 13, 18, 23, 28, 33, 38, 43, 48.

Use these numbers:

15 –

30 –

7 –

18 –

26 –

Adjusting This Task For You

If the task above was a bit tricky for you, try this:

Skip count up to 50 using 5s- Write the numbers in order and represent the pattern through drawing.

For example, 5 *****, 10 *****, 15 ***** – to show that it is 5 more each time.

If the task above wasn’t challenging enough for you, try this:

Choose the following numbers: 85, 110, 97 and 177 and then skip count on by 5s.

Can you skip count backwards from those numbers?
