100 Beads

Updated: Jan 13, 2021

Here is another activity to work on counting, number sense, and place value strategies. Line up 10 baking cups and write the numbers 10, 20, 30…100 inside of them. Provide your children with a bowl or beads (or any other small countable object that you have 100 of) and instruct them to count out 10 beads for each cup. Your children will be able to see how tens and ones work together to build 100 while also getting a little fine motor practice in manipulating the beads. For extra support I often move our 100s chart into view (find one to download Here {LINK THE 100s CHART PRINTABLE} and talk through the various concepts with them. When you are done let your children string the beads into a necklace or on pipe cleaners!
