Hundred boards are an excellent way to help children develop number sense. In this game, they have to work out where a given number might be.
Write the numbers 1-100 on cards and have your child arrange them on the floor. Hide a surprise under each number: a coin, a candy, a card with silly instructions such as “hop on one foot” or “kiss mom”.
Write two sets of the numbers 0-9 on cards and put them in a bag or shuffle them in a deck.
The first player draws two numbers and arranges them as they choose, so for example, if you draw a 2 and an 8, you can have 28 or 82. Find the number and see what’s underneath! Play to an agreed-upon stopping point, or play until you’ve finished the whole board.
