- I specifically set up this 100-grid with the numbers starting with 10-20-30-40 etc. instead of ending with those numbers like most of the 100 number grids you’ll find.
- I don't want students to be able to see that number coming at the end, so they are indeed memorizing it. This is a difficult concept for some.
- I also wanted to be able to take one strip at a time and focus on that complete set of numbers if I wanted to.
- Another reason is that my students are learning to read from left to right so if I want to count by 10’s to 100 it’s easier for them to “see” that if the numbers are on the left going to the right.
- I made this number grid horizontal so that I could make the squares bigger so that my traceable numbers could also be larger.
- I've also included a traceable 100's chart, which is often hard to find.
- After I got these grids designed I thought they’d be perfect for a slider. So I made “Gabby Apple” with wiggle eyes.
I hope your students enjoy making and learning with her. Click on the link to view/print the pix, patterns and directions. 100 Day Apple Slider and 100 charts. Thanks for visiting. Feel free to PIN anything you think others may find useful.
