I love 100s charts. In fact, I love them so much that we got a Wooden Hundred Board (and love it!!)
There are just so many ways to use 100s charts. I really love how visual they are. Royal also seems to quite enjoy 100 charts.
We tend to keep our 100s chart time short and fun. We used the guess that number cards from the previous post to determine which numbers to find. I had him cover the number with a gem. Then I’d ask him more questions like:
What is one more
Is it even or odd?
Next we used the page that has numbers covered up already. And I had him figure out what number is missing. I love this because it forces them to use their reasoning skills to figure it out.
And finally we worked on some skip counting by 5s. I love the skip counting visual of a 100s chart. We just covered each number and counted as we went. Nothing too fancy.
