Build fluency with numbers 1-100. Missing numbers, puzzles, games (+google slides version)

Activities on the 100 chart are a great way to build fluency with numbers in grade 1 and 2. Students can find patterns and relations, understand one more, one less, count by 2,3, and so on. Start with a 20 or 50 chart and gradually move on to the full 100 or 120 charts.

Here are some ideas of games/activities that you can do with the 100 or 120 chart.

  • Speed Pass. The students in a group or pair pass the empty chart to each other after writing in the next number. The first team/ pair that fills the chart wins.
  • Missing numbers on the chart. The students individually, in a team or pair, have to find the missing numbers on the chart or part of the chart. You can provide more or fewer hints depending on the level. (activity provided at the end of the post)
  • Four in a row. The students take turns rolling two dice, one for the ten’s place and one for the one’s place. They form a number and mark it on the table. The first to get 4 in a row horizontally, vertically, or diagonally wins the game. activity provided at the end of the post)
  • Replace some of the numbers on the chart with pictures or shapes. Ask different questions about the pictures or shapes, compare them, find their numbers. (activity provided below)
  • The teacher counts aloud and stops randomly for the students to say the next number. Same with counting by 2,3,5. Keep a big chart to show the numbers which can be marked to start with.
  • Use the 100 charts for counting rewards, days at school, days until Christmas, Halloween, and so on.
  • Coloring, counting by 2,3, 5, and 10. Discuss the patterns and relations.
  • Turn cheap 100 pieces puzzles into 100 chart puzzles by writing the numbers at the back.
  • Create your own puzzles by cutting pieces of the 100 chart that students can put together. (activity provided below)
  • Use the table for adding and subtracting 1 or 2 digit numbers.
