100's Chart Fun and a GIVEAWAY!

@astrobrights
While I love teaching reading to the moon and back, I also like teaching math and all the other stuff, too! I really do, I promise! 

A fab teacher in our County, Kathleen, shared this teacher easy 100's chart idea with us last year and my kids loved it! They needed to familiarize themselves with the 100's chart and this is a fun way to do it! It is also just one of the ways I #colorize!

All you need is a copy of a 100's chart (you could always do 50 or 120 too) and card stock. Copy the 100s chart onto brightly colored card stock. I use Astrobrights of course!  I use colored card stock for a few reasons. 
1. It grabs the kids' attention. 
2. It does not show dirt and wear as much as plain, old white!
3. Color makes me happy!

Be sure to laminate your copies before cutting! Then trim the 100s chart edges and cut away! 
I cut this one by tens, going horizontally! Cut strips until you have 10! (Cosmic Orange)
I love putting the U shape puzzle on Astrobrights Sunburst Yellow because they look like smiles! It is always a big hit and is a bit tricky!
One more way to cut is in strips vertically. I love this cut because it draws attention to the ones! (Terra Green)
Last but not least, and on the very beautiful Fireball Fuschia, is the zig zag cut. By far the toughest of the puzzles, my first graders love working up to this one! 

I put all of the mixed puzzles in one ziplock for easy storage. I have eight sets for students to use! They work on them as a warmup, can take them home for practice, or complete them as an independent activity. For students who need support, I include a 100s chart for them to reference. 

Now, I know what you are thinking! You are thinking that you are almost out of card stock and that your best colors were the first to go last year! Well today is your lucky day! Astrobrights is all about teachers and they are sponsoring a giveaway for My Mommy Reads so you can #colorizeyourclassroom!
