### Skip Counting by 2 Song

This Skip Counting by 2 Song gives children an introduction to skip counting and to their 2 times tables.
This skip counting video is suitable for children of all ages but is especially aimed at children in in preschool, kindergarten, first grade and second grade.

### Skip Counting by 3s Song

This Skip Counting by 3s Song gives children an introduction to skip counting and to their 3 times tables.
This counting video is suitable for children of all ages but is especially aimed at children in in preschool, kindergarten, first grade and second grade.

Given that children are often a little older when they learn to multiply by 3, it is important for parents to enthusiastically encourage and help them. Otherwise, if their motivation is beginning to drop and other distractions are getting stronger, this could be the point at which they start to fall behind.

### Skip Counting by 4s Song

This Skip Counting by 4s Song gives children an introduction to skip counting and to their 4 times tables.
This skip counting video is suitable for children of all ages but is especially aimed at children in in first grade through fourth grade.

Most children have mastered their two, three, five and ten times tables before moving onto the number 4. If your child is struggling or not enjoying this part of their mathematical education remind them that just by knowing those other tables, they already know how to multiply 4 by 2, 3, 5 and 10 – they are almost halfway there before they even start!

### Skip Counting by 5s Song

This Skip Counting by 5s Song gives children an introduction to skip counting and to their 5 times tables.
This skip counting video is suitable for children of all ages but is especially aimed at children in in first grade through fourth grade.

The next step after this is for children to be able to answer five times table questions in a random order. It is also important for them in developing their knowledge of numbers to be taught that if they know five times six equals thirty, it is only a small step to knowing that thirty divided by five equals six and thirty divided by six equals five.

### Skip Counting by 6s Song

This skip counting by 6s song gives children an introduction to skip counting and to their 6 times tables.
This skip counting video is suitable for children of all ages but is especially aimed at children in in second grade through fourth grade.

How well can you multiply by six? Many adults learned the easier multiplication tables thoroughly and with great enthusiasm, but began to lose a bit of interest by about the time the 6 times table came around. So now might be a good time to show some energy and passion about math with your child and really help them master this phase of their numerical development.

### Skip Counting by 7s Song

This skip counting by 7s song gives children an introduction to skip counting and to their 7 times tables.
This counting video is suitable for children of all ages but is especially aimed at children in in third grade through fifth grade.

The seven times table is considered one of the most difficult to learn. This song aims to give your child a pleasant introduction to multiplying by seven and assist in them memorizing the table. If you are a little bit rusty on the seven times table yourself, then why not try to re-learn it at the same time as your child does. Lead by example with good humor and enthusiasm and remind your child that they probably already know most of this multiplication table if they know the twos through sixes and the tens.

### Skip Counting by 8s Song

This skip counting by 8s song gives children an introduction to skip counting and to their 8 times tables. This skip counting video is suitable for children of all ages but is especially aimed at children in in third grade through fifth grade.

If your child is having difficulty skip counting by 8, remind them of the similarity between counting by 4s. If they know how to count by 4 then they have already covered off the early numbers in the counting by 8s sequence (the 8s are simply every other number of when you count by 4s). So 8, 16, 24, 32 and 40 (and possibly 48) should all be simple!

### Skip Counting by 9s Song

This skip counting by 9s song gives children an introduction to skip counting and to their 9 times tables.
This counting video is suitable for children of all ages but is especially aimed at children in in third grade through fifth grade.

Multiplying by nine is often one of the final tables taught – but it is actually one of the easiest because of the pattern formed by the number sequence. The first digit of each number rises by 1 and the second digit reduces by 1 as you progress through the table – and once kids learn this pattern, they should find it easier to skip count by nine.

There is also a nine times tables trick – simply hold your fists in front of you with your knuckles pointing to your eyes. To find the answer to any nine times table point to the relevant knuckle – the number of knuckles to the left will be the first digit and the number to the right will be the second digit in the answer.

### Skip Counting by 10s Song

This skip counting by 10s song gives children an introduction to skip counting and to their 10 times tables. This counting video is suitable for children of all ages but is especially aimed at children in first grade through third grade.

In many countries, the ten times table – along with the twos and the fives – is one of the first multiplication tables taught. This makes sense, because it is very simple – and once children realize they merely need to add a zero to the end of the number to work out the answer, they should find multiplying by ten easy.

But the simplicity of the tens times table should not mask its importance. Our number system is based on the number ten and the ability to easily mentally multiply or divide by ten is one of the hallmarks of numerical proficiency.
