St. Pat's Day Hundreds Puzzles

I have not been blogging for quite some time, but I have been creating some new materials for my classroom.      Since I am trying to get back on to my blogging and sharing schedule, I thought I would give away some of the games and activities that I have made. I used to create everything using PrintShop. It is so easy to use and could do a lot of things (in my standards.) But I kept seeing most teachers saying they use Powerpoint  to create printables. So last month on a one of my snow days, I played with Powerpoint and found out that it is even easier than PrintShop. I now use Powerpoint for everything. I am still learning all the tricks and tips, but I love how easy it is to align things. I do miss the Headline feature in PrintShop. I am certainly not as tech savvy or as creative as many of the teachers out there that blog or sell on TPT. However, sharing and collaborating with other teachers makes me a better teacher. I have always said that if  I come away with just one idea from a workshop, book, bloghopping, Pinterest Pinning, or whatever it may be, I am a better teacher and my students benefit from my new knowledge. Hopefully, you will check back often and find your one idea or activity that you can take with you back to your classroom.

Here is a St. Pat's Day themed Hundreds Chart Activity that you may be able to use this week.  
You know those kids that can count to 100 or even 1000, but they do not understand the relationship of the numbers. I created these little puzzles to try to build number sense. 
These puzzles will help them with +1, -1, +10 and -10. This set has numbers to 100. 
 You can use just the puzzles or there are printables and answer keys if you want documentation. 

If you want more details on the Hundreds Chart Puzzles you can check out a more detailed description at my TPT store HERE.
