We’re delighted to release our latest free mobile friendly number charts resource. It’s called Paint the Squares and it works really well both as a teacher demonstration tool in full screen mode on an interactive whiteboard or as a desktop or tablet resource for children to explore number patterns. It has been designed for use with 5 – 9 year olds.
The resource is an enhancement on the idea of an interactive 100 number square as there are eight different charts to choose from, making the resource more versatile for use with different age groups. You can choose to start your chart at either 0 or 1. The early charts 1 to 30 or 0 – 29 are excellent for young children who are learning their teens or twenties numbers. We have also included charts from 1 to 120 or 0 to 119 for those children learning how to bridge 100.
You can ‘paint’ the number squares with different colours to show your number patterns such as odds and evens, multiples patterns, counting on or back and in-between numbers for example.
The print option gives desktop users the opportunity to print out their painted number pattern charts.
