Here are some suggestions on how you can use each resource:

1) Color coded Chinese 100s chart

- First to 100 (yi bai) - Students work with a partner and take turns to roll a dice. If a student gets 5, he will move his counter 5 steps forward counting in Mandarin. He then needs to identify in Mandarin whichever number he lands on. If someone accidentally counts in English, he will need to move back 3 steps. First student to get to 100 wins the game.
Variation: use 1 or 2 dices depending on student abilities; or a 12 sided dice.

2) Black & white Chinese 100s chart (suitable for more able students)

- students can play First to 100 as described above

- teacher calls out a number in Mandarin and students need to put the counter on the number as fast as they can; alternatively, the teacher can say the number in English and students need to identify the number in Mandarin and put the counter on the correct number
Variation: the teacher can select a student to be the "teacher position"

3) #1-10 Number strips (requires some prepping, however this is a great rotation activity and can be re-used over and over again in the whole semester)

This number strip is used to assist students who are new to Mandarin or have little exposure to the language to learn their numbers and get familiar with it.

- Number ordering - Teachers can print 2 sets of these number strips. 1 set for cutting up into individual numbers, 1 set to be laminated and used as a whole strip.
Students need to look at each number and put them in the right order. Start off by providing students with the number strips. After a few lessons, once students are familiar with the order, the teacher can take away the number strip.
Variation: teachers can chop off the top of the numbers (the roman number) to challenge students who are more able

4) #1-10 Number strips with missing numbers

- Fill in the missing numbers - students need to identify what numbers are missing on the strip. Then, they need to select the correct number from their individual numbers packet to place it on the "gap". Note: students are not supposed to have the #1-10 Number Strip in this activity. However, if they need some help, they can use the strip.
* When students are able to put the numbers in the correct order without any assistance, you know you have done well! ;)

5 & 6) Number Playdough mats

This activity is fairly self-explanatory - make some play dough for the students and all they need to do is roll it into the shape of the numbers (and place it on the gap on the numbers)! Simple yet fun activity to help students familiarize with the shape of Chinese numbers.

7 & 8) Numbers Worksheet (#1-25 & #1-45)

There are 3 sections on this worksheet. Part 1 requires students to fill in the missing numbers on the table in Chinese. Part 2 requires students to identify what the Chinese numbers are and write it in the numeral form (e.g. 三 = 3)
Part 3 requires students to look at the numeral number and translate it into Chinese (十九 = 19 )

This worksheet can be used for reinforcement or as an assessment (complete in one go or broken down into 3 small parts). Teachers should model how to do it and go through a few (different) examples with students to ensure clarity and understanding.
The whole page would take around 10-15 minutes for non-heritage speakers of Chinese.

9) Worksheet for tracing & writing Chinese numbers 1-10

This is a worksheet that requires students to trace the number twice and write it twice again on their own. It can be laminated and re-used for small group/rotational activities by using whiteboard markers.
