Skip Count by 5

12 new nickels stacked so tall,
Looks like they might take a fall...
Before 12 nickels fall to Earth,
Let's find out how much they're worth!
Counting nickels is such fun,
Count by 5's until you're done!
5 - 10 - 15 - 20
That's the way! We're in the money!
25 - 30 - 35 - 40
Now our stack is getting shorty!
45 - 50 - 55 - 60
The stack is gone, wasn't tricky!
Nickels, nickels,
We skip count,
By 5’s to find their full amount!

How much money is 12 nickels worth?


(Remember when you skip count by 5, each number you land on ends with a 0 or a 5)
