A 10 by 10 grid with all the numbers from 1 to 100 listed from smallest to biggest is known as a hundred chart. For kids who are learning to count to 100 and strengthening their competency with numbers, a hundred chart is highly useful.

A hundred chart has numbers that are displayed in rows of 10 from left to right, opening in the top left corner with the number 1 and continuing all the way through to the bottom right corner with the number 100.

The numbers in the horizontal rows rise by one as you walk from left to right. Meanwhile, if you check at the vertical columns, you'll see that the number rises by ten as you decrease a square.

There are several benefits to using and teaching your children about a hundred charts, such as:

- To improve number sense and counting abilities

Even though it may seem simple, a hundred chart is an extremely useful tool for kids who are beginning to count and developing their number sense. They can practice counting by using a chart with hundreds that they can read as they add the numbers.

Additionally, they may also see the number as they pronounce it when counting using just a hundred chart, which helps them begin to correlate the name of the number to the numbers that correspond to it. In addition, reading numbers on a number chart from right to left rather than left to right can allow you to practice counting backward.

- Skipping counting

When kids first learn to skip count, hundreds of charts come in very handy. A kid is better able to understand the concept of skip counting when it is first introduced using a hundred chart.

It's a beneficial idea to spend some time when skip counting observing the shapes that appear in the hundreds grid, including both regards to the numbers you are shading in and the shapes the shaded squares produce.

- Number addition and subtraction

In addition and subtraction of integers within 100, the hundreds chart is a fantastic tool. This is actually very simple, despite the fact that it sounds like it would be difficult.

The use of hundred charts is a fantastic method for teaching a variety of math concepts, including count, adding, multiplying, solving problems, skipping counting, and more. Consequently, you may want to consider performing the following hundred chart activities below:

- Provide children with a crayon or marker and ask them to fill in the numbers just like they skip count. They were able to count in tens (10, 20, 30, etc.), twos (2, 4, 6, 8), and other numerals. Making things more difficult for them, you may have someone to start with a different number than 1.
- Print the hundred chart twice, once in color and once in white cardstock. Longitudinal strips should be cut from the colored copy. Children should place the colored strip on top of the corresponding white column after picking up each strip one at a time.
- Create a blank version of the hundred charts. Your children should complete the remaining numbers after you fill in a few. This project can easily be differentiated for various levels of skill because the simpler it is, the more numbers you put first.
- As with a jigsaw, divide a hundred charts into pieces. Then, have the pupils put it back together.
- By placing dime coins on the hundred charts, teach children how to count them. If the first dime were used, it would be placed on the 10. The following dime would sit atop the 20 and so forth.
- Learn to color in red, orange, yellow, red, orange, yellow, and other patterns.
- Set up a 100-meter competition between two student pairs. As an example, Player One plays his playing piece by the number of spaces determined by the dice roll. The next chance to roll and move is that of Player Two. The winner is the person who reaches 120 first.
- Quickly drop from 120. Two players rotate throwing the dice and sliding their pieces down that many spaces, starting at 120. One wins if they reach zero first.
- Ask children to color all even numbers (0, 2, 4, 6, etc.) before having them do the same with all odd numbers. Take note of how the columns are lined with even and odd numbers.
- Encourage children to color in groups and to seek out patterns.
- Learn to round numbers to the nearest ten. Children can find the ten that a given number is closest to by counting up and down to the next ten. Numbers with an even number of digits round-up; numbers with an odd number of digits round down, and numbers with an even number of digits round up.
- Children should roll two dice, add the results, and then shift that several spaces on their hundred chart if they are more skilled mathematicians. The winner is the first person to score 120 points!
