Counting with a 100s Board and iPads

We continued our work with patterning today where students used number cards to make a 100s board as a whole class on the carpet. We practised our counting patterns together and took a photo of the hundreds board on our iPads. In Maths groups students created a book in Explain Everything and added the hundreds board photo to each page. They highlighted a different counting pattern on each page of their book with the pen tool and recorded themselves saying the counting patterns aloud. This activity provided easy opportunities for differentiation, allowing capable students to demonstrate their knowledge of more complex counting patterns and less confident students focused on simpler patterns.
