### Driveway Hundred Chart

There are a lot of ways to use a hundred chart on paper. But, sometimes it's fun to go a little bit bigger. While my kids were at school one day, I ran outside and created a giant hundred chart on our driveway. I couldn't believe how excited they were to see it. And, I love that they still get excited about things like this!

You can use a driveway hundred chart in so many ways. We played a simple game I called "Race to 100." All you need to play this game is your driveway hundred chart and one or two dice. (Just grab a couple from a board game.) Each person started at zero. They threw the dice and moved that many spaces. The first person who got to 100 won. It's that simple. While they were at it, they were learning number order and simple addition.

You can also play a slightly different version by going in the opposite direction, "Race to Zero." Start at 100 and go backwards. Now you're working on subtraction.

There are so many other ways to use a driveway hundred chart.

Let your kids walk, jump, or skip their way through the chart while saying the numbers out loud.

Test your jumping skills by skip counting. Can they make the big leaps required when counting by 5's? It's fun to try!

Walk your way through addition or subtraction problems. It's a fun way to practice your math facts.

Practice your multiplication tables. Jump your way through the 2's or 3's or 4's or... you get the idea. Jump from 3 to 6 to 9 to 12 all while reciting your threes multiplication facts. Sometimes kids just need the movement to help them learn these things.

I'm sure if you and I kept brainstorming, we could come up with many more ways to use a driveway hundred chart.
