For the first few weeks of school our 1st grade focus is recognizing number patterns on the 100s chart, as well as, ‘before’ and ‘after’. My go-to 100’s chart is SPLAT online ! We turn this online resource into a game, playing as a class on our SMART Board. Using different paint colors, students can visualize patterns on the chart. Another variation on the game is having students take turns making number puzzles, “I’m think of a number that is one more than 15.” Everyone would circle it on their 100s chart (at their desk using a dry erase marker) and then, one special friend would SPLAT a number on the board.
