- Practice counting 1 to 100.
- Call out a number and have your child cover it with a counter or tile. Especially good for a child who has trouble telling the difference between the teens and higher numbers.
- Make patterns or graphs on a blank 100’s chart.
- Practice skip counting by 2’s, 5’s, and 10’s.
- Practice skip counting and use counters or tiles to mark places and make a pattern.
- Practice skip counting but start on different numbers – count by 10’s starting with 3, etc.
- Use a 100’s chart to find patterns in addition and subtraction problems.
- I’m thinking of a number – Tell the child you are thinking of a number. Let them guess a number and you say higher or lower (depending on what the number is!) until they can guess the right number.
- Using a blank 100’s chart, fill in some of the numbers but leave blank spaces. Have the child write in the appropriate numbers.
- Rounding to the nearest 10 – say a number and have the child put a marker on that number. Then let them decide which 10 that number is closer to and put a marker on it.

Things to do with a Hundreds Chart
We've started working on 100s in our math program and I've been looking for some ideas and activities we can do with a 100s chart. Here are a few that I've found:
