This activity helps kids learn to count to 100, introduces them to place values, helps with number recognition and number relationships while allowing them to be actively involved as they learn instead of just staring at a chart with lots of numbers which can be overwhelming.

I realized we aren’t ready for a 100 chart yet but we have mastered counting to 20 so now what? We started counting to thirty of course but understanding the relationship between 20 and 30, understanding that the ones place value starts over again with each new group of ten, and recognizing all the numbers started getting really overwhelming. So to help break things down I made a 100s chart that kids can build without having to place all 100 numbers on their own.

As we were doing this activity I watched my daughter go through that exciting moment when a new concept has been learned–like if she had a light bulb on top of her head I know it would have been shinning bright! By building her chart and observing the numbers she was able to point out the number patterns that make math logical and fun! (Below I share more of what she learned).

To prep the activity print the 10s columns. I used 11 pieces of colored paper to make each column a different color in rainbow order to help give a visual clue as she is counting. The printable includes the numbers for the ones place value with each 10s column so you can choose to have them be the same color or print them on different colored paper like I chose to (I made them white). I laminated the columns and numbers to keep them nice while the kids use them.

To do the activity separate the numbers for the ones place value. I used an ice cube tray to put them in.

Line up the columns and have child add the ones place value to complete the numbers. You don’t have to use all the columns at once.

When the columns are filled line them up and talk about the number relationships. Little Tiger counted by 10s by pointing to the top numbers. She noticed that all the rows had the same second number (ones place value) and the columns had the same first number (tens place value). Eventually we will build the whole chart but at this point I don’t want to rush her so we have been using it to count to 30. She will be counting to 100 in no time.
