Skip Counting Lapbook

Skip counting has been very hard for Bug, I made charts and tried many other things and they all ended up in tears on both ends. I looked for a skip counting lapbook and couldn't find one that just focused on skip counting. This is the result of my first lapbook. She loves pulling out Her enchanted lapbook. It has 2, 5 and 10 skip counting. The best part is no more tears.
We did this last year. The front page we did a castle coloring page.

We put a princess petal book from Homeschool shares. We used this coloring page.

The triangle books I made myself because I couldn't find the size I wanted. I have one on each side. You could use this as a petal book. I told Bug that they are Cinderella's coin purse that she takes with her to the market to buy food for her step-mother and step-sisters. One side has fives and the other side has tens. I used Homeschool shares, the skip counting on The Grouchy Ladybug. Then we decorated it with clipart. We put clipart all over to folder to make it more colorful. You could also use stickers.
You can also see my attempt to make up something for counting by two's. My idea was her cleaning the floor and to have the bubbles have the numbers in them. I didn't come out the way I had intended it to. It is not my favorite part. Bug thinks it is neat. So if she is happy, then I am happy.

Bug's favorite part of the lapbook is the ice cream cones. I made a pocket out of heavy card stock and then put some scrapbooking paper to decorate the front of the pocket. With a brad faster I put a Royal Wedding dessert menu: Ice Cream Cones. This is next to the pocket. The ice cream cone came from here. I did 5-100. That way we can count by either five or tens. I laminated the ice cream cones.

Skip counting is still a challenge for Bug. I am sure it will click one day. At least she enjoys it now and she doesn't cry anymore.
