Skip count by fives to find the total. Hint: Remember you do not need to count in ones.

We’re showing a picture of the three hands. We’re told to skip count by fives to find the total. We’re being asked to find the total number of fingers. Each of the hands is showing five fingers. We know there are three hands, and we know that each hand has five fingers. So we need to skip count in fives three times to find the total number of fingers. Five, 10, 15. There are 15 fingers in total. We knew we didn’t need to count in ones because each hand had five fingers. So we skip counted by fives to find the total. Five, 10, 15. There are 15 fingers altogether.
