The Hundreds Chart Video Tweet: My Learning Risk

I’m on a learning mission.  I am hungry to learn, and I need your help.  Truthfully, we probably all need each other to fuel one another’s passion for learning.

When we connect, we ignite.

So, I’m taking a risk.  I’m trying something new.  I’m stretching the boundary of what I know to an uncomfortable place where I very well might fail, but where I am likely to grow.  I am going to try something new.

This is a “video tweet.”  It consists of a PowerPoint resource that I just created a few minutes ago, a resource that I would like to send to you.  It is a hundreds chart and a series of instructional ideas.  The chart is simple, but the opportunities to pursue mathematical understanding are powerful once you begin to see them.

There is no Hollywood-quality microphone here, no fancy production.  But I made the resource with this belief:  If I take the learning risk, then the product of that risk might become even better when you hold it in your hands.  The resource will become better when you look at it with the lens that only you have: the understanding of your students.

Your students are amazing.  You know your group of students better than anyone else.  So I’m taking a risk.  Here is a resource.

If it interests you, contact me and I’ll make sure it reaches you.

I am on a learning mission.

    I love your resources. I am a new teacher and am struggling with finding ways to generate fruitful conversation in the classroom. Do you have transcripts of your video blogs that we could download as a pdf and store with the resource files to review before using the materials? I would like to use them to create notes for myself so I don’t trip up as much during the activities? A pdf is much more efficient for me than watching the videos over and over and taking notes. Thanks for your wonderful resources!

      Thank you for this suggestions. I haven’t written any transcripts of the videos I’ve recorded. I like the idea a lot and can see it as a great addition going forward, but don’t have any right now. Please let me know if there are other ways that I can be helpful. Thanks for viewing the blog!

      Hi, Krista. Thank you for this note! I’ll set the interactive hundreds chart up so that it can be downloaded. I’ll try to finish that tonight. I’m sure it is a 2-minute task that will take me a little longer, since I am new to this part of blogging. It should have a download link soon.

    Hi Steve,

    I just discovered your AMAZING multiplication chart via a colleague and went to discover what other resource you have created… thank you for sharing and creating the helpful videos to accompany the tools. If you could please e-mail me this hundreds chart it would be greatly appreciated. I’ll also be following you on tweeter so I can be kept in the know of your creations!

    Hi Steve,
    I just discovered your amazing tweet. I’m new the the tweet world and love your interactive 100’s chart. Over the Thanksgiving break I am lucky enough to have a Smart Board installed in my classroom. I think that your interactive 100’s chart would be a great addition to my first grade program. Your video was fantastic. Thanks so much.

    This would be great for students with working memory difficulties – makes it easy to provide more visual and less verbal input. Wonder if next version could have greater colour contrast between black and the pointer colour to make it easier for some students to see? Love a copy. Think you missed one of the prime numbers though!

      Hi, Anne. I was clicking pretty quickly, so I certainly may have missed a prime number. Which one are you thinking of?

    I would LOVE to use this with my kiddos and will let you know how it goes. I was wondering if I could do a write up on and add your resource. I think MANY would benefit from your creation. Let me know and thank you for sharing on #1stchat!

    Right now, I teach second graders but have taught 2nd-6th graders and this tool would be great for all.

    This is a terrific tool! I would use it on my Promethean Board. I see so many great uses for it. Mental math, patterns, counting practice. I would love to have this resource if you are willing to share it.
