When I taught mathematics I remember having a giant hundred’s chart in my classroom we would work on counting backwards and forwards from different numbers, skip count in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s and look at odd and even numbers on the chart. The visual representation of the numbers in a block made it easier for some of the students to grasp the concepts in the first few years of school. I also had sets of hundred charts that the kids used one of my favourite ways to use them were in pairs with a die and get them to race to 100. With the very youngest the die would be a standard 6 sided one with numbers or dots but as we progressed I switched out for different numbers – using addition and subtraction on one of the chalkboard dice I had made changed the game around and challenged children a little more. This Easter Themed Race to 100 Maths Game is perfect for practising basic addition and subtraction.
