Thousand Chart

Classroom Freebies Manic Monday
We just finished the second week of school. This week was really our first week of math instruction since we mainly taught procedures last week. We kicked off our addition unit by creating a one thousand chart. Last year, we made a 1,000 scroll. The students cut out 10 small hundreds charts and glued them on receipt paper, and then stapled a straw to both ends. That was a cute idea in theory, but it took my students FOREVER to cut out all the hundreds charts and glue them onto the receipt paper. Then the scrolls kept falling out of their journals and I found them all over my classroom. This year, I came up with a new plan----wait for it....  I copied ten (full sheet) blank hundreds charts for each student. I used a paper cutter to slice the extra paper off the top and the bottom of the charts so that they would fit in the composition notebooks they use as their math journals. Let me tell you, this was the best solution!! Not only did it save so much time, my kiddos will have access to their chart for month to come since it is glued into their journals. I have included a blank hundred chart in my Free Thousand Chart (see below).
I also created a classroom thousand chart. I wanted a chart for my classroom so that we could easily discuss place value patterns using numbers from 1 to 1,000. Because the chart is laminated, my students may write on it with dry erase markers. Click here to download your free Thousand Chart!
I also created a printable booklet. Click here to get your free Printable Booklet!
