Counting up by multiples, such as 5, 10, 15, 20, is an important maths skill for kids to master.
Turn it into fun with these Missing Numbers exercises. Children count up by a number in order to identify which numbers in the sequence are missing. The children have fun "playing" whilst practising counting in multiples.
You decide what number to count up by, then press MAKE GAME. A window will appear with your Missing Numbers exercise on it for you to print.
You can specify whether blanks are to appear in the sequence and whether the answers are to be printed on the page.
...parenting tip of the moment
The key parenting skill you need to develop when entertaining your new child is the ability to Distract. If they get bored, or scared, or cry for any reason,...misdirect their simple little minds elsewhere. For starters, show them something. Anything.
"Look, a fuzzy tiger."
They will most likely stop crying and evaluate this new information.
"Hmmm, a tiger, I hadn't realized that..."
"Yes, a tiger...look...see the tiger?..."
"Well, (sniffle) my stomach was hurting..."
"I know, I know..."
"But... a tiger, you say..."
"Yes, a tiger. Right here. Here is a tiger..."
It doesn't even have to be as interesting as a tiger. Any physical item that is currently on the planet and within reach will do.
"Look, the cap to Daddy's water bottle...see...plastic...and white...isn't that something? And here are some keys."
They're willing to seriously consider whatever you have to offer.
quoted from "Babyhood" by Paul Reiser of television's "Mad About You", pages 170-171
Small children should be supervised by a caregiver when at a computer,
to ensure no accidents occur that could hurt the child and that no equipment gets broken.
