#### Suggestions for Use

• Use the poster 2x2 or 3x3 setting on your printer to print as a poster, or reduce in size to make desk reference - see our printing page for details on how to do this. Print onto white or coloured cardex for best results then laminate.
• Use this laminated poster and whiteboard markers to circle number patterns and play around with the numbers as a whole class activity (I used to do this as part of our maths routine - we would play a few games and do a few drills before getting started).
• My son has one of these 100s chart on his wall, and it has been terrific just as general reference - the children love searching for number patterns, and searching for numbers before, after, larger, smaller, tens, twos, fives, multiples of 6 etc.
• Play number games such as 'I am thinking of a number' - children use the chart to ask questions about the number you are thinking of.
• Use as a number line for counting on, counting back, addition and subtraction games and activities. For example - start on 6 - count on 12 - where do you land? Use a frog counter to do jumping on and back.
• Use the blank hundreds chart for children to fill in their own 100s chart - they can also then colour in the number patterns.
• Copy and laminate a class set onto coloured card. Play whole class and group math games such as listed above as well as dice / spinner number games such as the following...... Roll the dice /games spinner, start on that number. If you throw an odd number you move backwards, if you throw an even number you move forwards. To make this game more difficult - use 2 dice or spin twice and add the numbers together - odd numbers backward, even numbers forward.
• Copy onto clear transparencies and use a button or counter to play the games above using an overhead projector.
• Pop a spare laminated 100s chart in the maths center. Children love pretending to be the teacher - during maths group time, each child gets a turn at being the teacher and asking for certain numbers to be circled etc using your modelling from whole class sessions.
• Call out different numbers to be coloured / circled etc. For example - colour in the number which comes before 45, the number between 20 and 22, the number 5 more than 55 etc. This activity can be done as a whole class with the laminated chart or individual sheets for each child.
• Use this poster size laminated number chart template to cut up into largish puzzle pieces - you could even have a few with differing difficulties - copy onto coloured cardex to distinguish between the difficulty levels. For example cut the hundreds chart into groups of 10, 20, 5 etc and children put it back together again.
• Cutting the hundreds chart completely up into 'ones' is also a great activity - children love putting the whole lot back together again. Of course you then can remove certain numbers and play games like what's the missing number and so forth. Lots of things to do....here.

1. These are fantastic. I use them to cut up into a puzzle for the students to re-arrange. Can they please be extended to 1000?
