Blank Hundred Chart
• Give each student a blank hundred chart. NOTE: placing a blank hundred chart
in a sheet protector allows students to use dry erase markers and erase work so
that the same sheets can be reused on a regular basis to help students acquire
hundred chart proficiency.
• A hundred chart should be displayed in the classroom for student reference, as
needed, to complete these activities.
• Monitoring student solution methods (e.g. usi n g 100 chart patterns or counting
on by 1s) provides insi ght into student proficiency and helps teachers design
• The hundred chart is a critical tool for young mathematical learners that can be
used to solve problems and should be as familiar as the ABC’s of literacy.
• Write the numbers 1 – 10 in the spaces of the first row.
• Count by 10. Write those numbers on the chart.
• Write the number 25 where it belongs.

• Put your finger on 50. Write the number that comes before 50.

• Fill in the rest of the numbers in the hundred chart.
VARIATION: Allow pairs of students to challenge each other. One student has a blank
hundred chart. The other partner has a preprinted hundred chart so that he/she can
check his/her partner’s work as they “play” with the hundred chart.
