This is an open-ended flexible crayon themed resource for sequencing 3 digit numbers (101-999) in a variety of ways. Use it to provide individualized practice or review for your second and third-grade math students. It can be used for ordering sets of consecutive or non-consecutive numbers and for counting by 5’s, 10’s, 100’s or any multiple. The color or black/ white crayons can be used to create math stations. This set does not include every number from 101-999. It includes each number 651-850, 100-900 by hundreds, 4 sets of 5 numbers counting by hundreds (246, 346, etc.), numbers 350-550 by 5’s (& 10’s), and 6 sets of 5 numbers counting by 10’s off the decade. Sets of number crayons can be simply placed in order or placed on the color or black/ white crayon mats (for sets of 5 or fewer only). The black/ white crayons are also suitable for a color, cut, and glue activity. I have added a second set of ready to use, easy prep black/ white crayons with a variety of sequences, mixed-up within each set of five numbers (consecutive numbers within a hundred, nonconsecutive numbers within a hundred, consecutive numbers across a hundred, nonconsecutive numbers 101-999, count by 10’s, by 100’s, and by 5’s). Crayons with writing lines to fill in numbers are also included. There are optional recording sheets for writing sequences of 5 numbers from least to greatest and greatest to least. I have been added a page of number lines 0-1000 by 10’s, grouped by hundreds, with a color or black/ white border, to provide support, as needed. You choose the numbers and the skills which best meet your students’ instructional needs.

Ideas for Number Sequences

Consecutive numbers within a hundred (654, 655, 656, 657, 658)

Consecutive numbers across a hundred (798, 799, 800, 801, 802)

Nonconsecutive numbers (674, 735, 782, 809, 841)

Count by 5’s, or 10’s, etc. (390, 395, 400, 405, 410)

Count by 100’s (400, 500, 600, 700, 800)
