A number grid can be made in a variety of ways. The first method is to write the numbers in order. The procedure is to write the numbers one, two, three, and so on up to 10, followed by the number eleven under the number one. This method is a little tiresome because the child must write everything in sequence, but it is excellent for youngsters who are just learning to write so they can correctly count or write numbers. The second method is to put down the numbers from one to two, three to four, five to six, seven to eight, and nine in the first line. To make things simpler, we might refer to the numbers in the first row as "initial numbers." The numbers are then copied again in the second line. What will be the next step? We just add the number one in front of the preceding number in the second row to continue the number after the number nine. The number one stands in for the number 10. To make things easier, we can write the number one with a separate marker. Next, we'll check if this strategy can be applied to the third row. Yes, it appears that we are capable of doing so. We simply need to copy the original number and then add the number 2 in front of it. The number twenty is represented by the second number. Have you discovered the pattern? If not, we will attempt to fill in the third row. In this line, we write the original number followed by the number 3. Because the number 3 indicates the number 30, the numbers printed on the third line are 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, and 39. We can find the pattern more easily if we use a different marker because the original number on the right will always be the same as all that is 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and the one on the left will change like between numbers 20 and 29 all the numbers next to us are number 2 and between numbers 30 and 39, all the numbers on the left are number 3. Finally, write the numbers one through ten on the first line to make a number grid. Then we can write the number eleven under the number one, and the number twenty-one under the number next, and so on. We focus on writing numbers downwards in this manner. Because they already grasp the basic principles and do not need to learn to write sequentially, the following two approaches can be utilized for youngsters who are more familiar with how to write numbers.
There are numerous reasons why we should employ grid numbers in education, particularly for children. First, the number grid assists children in identifying number patterns. When we write numbers in a pattern, such as the second approach above, we teach the youngster how to write efficiently. We can ask children how they discovered the pattern and talk about it. Color can assist children to develop their memory skills since the more stimulation they experience, the better. Second, by using the grid, youngsters can begin counting from anywhere. In general, children can copy answers from their classmates when asked a question in class, but if students are given separate questions and focus on their respective number grids, it can assist ensure that the child understands. Children can count to 99 using the numerals 75, 88, or 99. This is simple since youngsters can see the number grid. Third, youngsters can take fill-in-the-blank tests. The child fills in the blank numbers in the number grid in this quiz. Then, using peer feedback, students can share their answers with their peers. The benefit of the quiz is that the youngster can accurately sort the numbers and understand the pattern of the numbers. Fourth, youngsters can participate in other activities such as grid puzzles. In this quiz, students must write the numbers that have been called in the correct order. This teaches students how to accurately position the numbers. Fifth, grid numbers make arithmetic operations like addition, subtraction, division, and multiplication easier for children to accomplish. These arithmetic operations are quick and easy to do by just shifting from one column to the next. This method of counting also encourages children to do arithmetic processes. Sixth, grid numbers can assist children in learning on their own. Children merely follow a pattern that has been taught to them and then executes it on their own as a type of exercise to improve comprehension. These are how you can utilize 120 grids that can be applied to your class. However, you should carefully watch your students whether they engage in learning with grids or not.
