Using Number Sense with Larger Numbers and a Freebie!

Thanks to the snow day (or shall I say ice day), I finally finished these number charts!  Back in the fall I had the idea for this product because I was working with a group of intervention children and they just weren’t able to tell me what 1,000 more or less than a number was when the number had more than four digits.  After the second grade standards, there are no standards that have children count past 1,000.  I think somewhere, someone who wrote the standards just assumed that children would be able to pick up on these patterns, but many times they aren’t able to see these patterns without explicit teaching.  That is what these number charts are meant to help teachers do.  In celebration of a snow day (2 snow days now), and over 600 fb followers, I made a free product with charts counting by 500.

Here is the main product that has number charts counting by 100, 500, and 10,000.  There are charts that count to 10,000; 100,000; and 1,000,000!  These will help students begin to see the patterns of larger numbers and help give you a basis for discussing rounding.  Not only that, but they increase in difficulty giving you a way to either scaffold or differentiate for your students!  Here is a peek at the complete set of number charts….
