### More Skip Counting by Tens off the Decade

My sweet and sassy 1st grade team wanted an independent practice activity for skip counting by 10s off the decade.  They wanted it to look like the hundred chart, so the kiddos could make the connection to the patterns in the hundred chart.  They also wanted it to be differentiated, so they could meet the kiddos at their level.  I came up with the ladder activity shown below.  Notice that the three versions use the same numbers, but they are increasingly difficult because of the number hint that is shown.  I also added a completely blank one you can customize.  Click here to grab your freebie.

You might also like Boo-tiful Skip Counting, another activity for skip counting by 10s off the decade.

3. I recently took over the math lessons for the first grade team at my school and was struggling (reading is my strength). Your blog has helped me create some awesome common core lesson plans and best of all the studnets love them.

1. Thanks so much! Glad to hear that you're getting into the math groove. :)

4. my kids did the tens ladders today in a center...i didn't have time to go to copy machine, so i just jotted them down on a piece of paper, and had the kids copy my ladders and fill them in on another sheet of their own...they absolutely loved doing it!! and then on the back, they created their own ladders for each other to complete. i could overhear them saying, "man this is fun!"
thanks for the idea!!
