- Dollar store border
I purchased this border at the Dollar Tree in the teacher section. The border has the numbers 1-10 on it and came with 14 different strips. The lids are from pouches (baby, toddler food). You can substitute milk jug lids instead.
- Children can lay the strips out counting by 10's to get to 100 (10 strips).
- Children can put a lid on each number to practice one-to-one correspondence.
- Add 1-2 dice to make it a game.
- Each child rolls and adds that many lids to the 100 strips. Game is over when they cover all of the numbers.
- Children can play the game as above but use 2 different colored lids. Each child uses one color. When the number strips are full, the children count their lids to see who has the most.
- For older children, they can tell how many more or how many less they have than their friend.
- 10 paint sticks for working within 100
- 12 paint sticks for working within 120
- Mod Podge
- Paint brush
- Copy of free printable (see below)
- Copy the free printable (see below).
- Cut in strips as seen above.
- Paint the stick with Modge Podge.
- Lay a number strip onto of the painted stick.
- Put another coat of Modge Podge on top of stick.
- Let dry.
- READY TO LEARN!
- Children place the sticks in order to make 100.
- Have one child remove a stick.
- The other child has to figure out which set of 10 has been removed.
- Use the extra number strips to 120 (included in the free printable) after children master this skill.
- Set out number sticks.
- Children arrange them to make 100.
- Children use different manipulatives or counters to build 100.
- Children can put the sets of 100 objects in plastic bags to compare the sizes of the bags.
