Once kids are able to multiply then they can use these skills to divide numbers. Hence it also helps kids to learn division, indirectly. So all four math operations are made easy with this skill. There is another very important elementary math topic named counting money. Counting nickels is skipping the numbers by 5, similarly it can help kids to add dimes, quarters and fifty cent coins, easily. Many times, teacher or parents use the coins to introduce skip counting to kids. This is a good idea, but the counting coins is the later skill to be learned after skip counting. Finally, it can be said that skip counting is a very important basic math skill. It worth to spend some time to learn it in lower grades (2nd grade math is the perfect time to learn it). Parents can print skip counting worksheets going online and ask their kids to practice this skill. Math is a subject of learning by doing, once kids learn any math skill then encourage them to practice it using worksheets on that topic.
There is an upper stream of very competitive kids who are not taking the shortcuts many of our schools are instituting. For example, there are many ambitious newcomers and some who are considered "old school" or traditional who have insisted their children take the more disciplined route and who can be seen in coffee houses all over the city with pen in hand working in study groups and using cursive writing. These children will become the doctors, lawyers and upper management. They are not late and do not say "Hellooh, I had a hair appointment." The bigger issue of education relates to the children with less discipline who have "lower case" reading/writing/and "rithmatic" skills and whose parents have glib answers to the shortcomings of today has education in schools and who have facile explanations why their children are only achieving a Grade "C" average.
Many educational experts and teachers value keyboarding over handwriting. This brings up some questions. Does a child need to know how to write his or her signature? Should a child be able to express himself or herself with handwriting? How does handwriting alter the brain? Parents and educators are struggling with these questions. You may be caught in the middle, and not know what to do. Linda Spencer describes the dilemma in a Chicago Tribune website article, "Does Cursive Writing Need to be Taught in a High Tech World." Her article refers to a 2012 conference in Washington, DC, held to examine handwriting. Attendees included educators, neuroscientists, teachers, and interested citizens.
