These adorable farm odd numbers skip counting puzzles take less than five minutes to prepare, which as a busy homeschooling mom of four daughters and work at home mom, I have things that I would much rather spend my time on than prep work. Because, as much as I love laminating things, having a life is much more fun. *wink*
Materials needed for the Farm Skip Counting Puzzles:
Scissors or paper cutter
To prepare the puzzles, print the skip counting puzzles found below, laminate and cut apart the pieces.
It’s that easy.
I wrap a rubber band around mine to store them.
Then, pull out a puzzle and have the kids work on their skip counting skills while they assemble the puzzle.
These puzzles have an added challenge because they all have odd numbers.
My daughter was a bit baffled when I told her that she was going to skip count by 2s and then gave her one of the puzzles. After the shock wore off, she thought it was pretty cool that you could skip count with different numbers.
If you have a child who is ready for more of a challenge, mix two or three puzzles together and have her sort them as she puts them together.
For fun, have your students create their own puzzles by drawing a picture, writing their skip counting numbers across the bottom and cutting into strips. Then have them trade with a partner and have the partner assemble the puzzle.
