Get more use out of your 100 board

 

 The 100 board is used to help students learn numbers to 100 but did you know you can do a lot more than that with it?

The simplicity of this board hides the variety of learning you can do with it.

Commonly children empty out the tiles that come with the hundred board and put them onto the correct place on the board using a control board to check their work. However with a couple of creative tweaks you can also use it to help teach place value and encourage mathematical thinking.

 

Some ideas

-          Find a tile and give it to the child. Ask them to make one more, one less, ten more and ten less. You could use this shape to help you as a guide. I’ve put in a number as an example

-          Have the child count backwards from a certain number, for example put the 64 on the board and have the child put all the tiles on the board that come before 64. You can make this easier by asking the child to put in all of the numbers that come before 64 but only start with a 6 or have the children put all the numbers on the board that are between 50 and 60

 

-          Ask the child to put on only certain numbers. For examplegive five different numbers. This means the child is not reliant on seeing the number tile before or after to find the correct place for a tile.

 

-          The child could skip count in 2s, 5s or 10s on the hundred board forwards or backwards

 

If you are like me time is of the essence and you would probably love some of these premade.
