The “100 Chart, Heart Art” is a very versatile activity
, as I’ve differentiated the directions for PK to 2nd grade
It’s perfect for February or Valentine’s Day
, when you’re looking for something a little different.
“Mystery Math” hidden pictures, are a quick, easy & fun
way to practice recognizing some of those big numbers that kiddos often trip over, when learning how to write and count numbers.
Using a 100s chart
so students are seeing numbers in proper sequence, helps them wrap their head around a variety of math patterns
, and is especially helpful to visual learners
I’ve included a 100s chart worksheet without directions, so you can do this as a whole-group, “Listening & following directions”
For younger kiddos, simply call out the numbers they need to color.
I feel even young children can gain number sense by doing this as a “monkey see-monkey do” activity. On your large teacher copy, you color in the number, then show it to your kiddos so they can copy you.
To conserve paper, and make coloring less tedious, there are 2-on-a-page
, as well as 4-on-a-page
I’ve also included a set of spatial directions
for you to read to older students.
“Find the number 66. Color that box and the box that is UNDER it.”
There’s also a worksheet
that includes the numbers to color, if you want to use this as a homework assignment
, table-top activity, independent center
, or something for early finishers
To practice double digit addition and subtraction
, there's a worksheet where students have to solve problems
to find out what numbers they are supposed to color.
This is a super-fun way to get in some additional math practice without the usual “same-old” worksheet.
Completed projects make a cute February bulletin board
Use the “We LOVE Mystery Math!”
poster in the middle of your display.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy magical mystery math as much as mine do.
