Hundreds and 120's Number Charts - Missing Numbers

Hundreds and 120's Number Charts - Missing Numbers

Included in this resource is both 100 and 120 number charts so that you can easily differentiate your lessons depending upon the students ability and learning goals. These number charts are a perfect way for students to learn and practice both their counting and place value. I have used these individually, for groups and whole class work. Once the students are shown what to do, they can also be used for homework, seatwork, or at a math center.The grids are large enough for students to write the numbers in with some numbers already entered to guide the students along.

ANZAC Day Jeopardy Quiz Game

ANZAC Day Jeopardy Quiz Game

This fun and engaging game is the perfect way to review, study or reflect with your class on ANZAC day I typically put the class into small groups and ask a member of the group to choose a color and number. That is the question that they have to answer. If correct they get one point. Then I move to the next group. Alternatively the whole class answers and then we tally up the points to get a winner. I run it on an interactive whiteboard but would be equally successful on a projector, computer or TV screen. Alternatively it could be run for an individual student on their own device. When you start the game press the shuffle button to randomize the questions ensuring that no game is ever the same. This means that this Jeopardy game can be used multiple times with the one class as it is different every time. Once you have unzipped the file you will find a PowerPoint Macro Show. To run the game double click the file and make sure you say “yes” to running macros. If you do not the questions will not shuffle correctly. I have tested on a PC but it should work on other devices. If this is your first time with Macros let me know by personal message and I am happy to answer all your questions.

I also cut them into the 6 picture strips, but you could leave them on the A4 page giving each student 12 initial sounds to find, as opposed to 6. They are perfect for individual, buddy or group activity. Please remember to follow me Enjoy
