This week we have been counting the Hundreds Chart. This is a wonderful counting tool for the children during numeracy computation. All you need to remember are a few of the rules below.

1. **(UP)** Whenever you move in this direction that means you **SUBTRACT 10.**

2. **(DOWN) **Whenever you move in this direction that means you **ADD 10**.

3. ** (LEFT)** Whenever you move in this direction that means you **SUBTRACT 1**.

4. ** (RIGHT) **Whenever you move in this direction that means you **ADD 1**.

We can move through the hundreds chart by breaking down numbers into**tens** and **ones**.

**Example:**

*Put your finger on the number 25.*

*Now add 3.* (That means you want to add 3 ones to 25, which is 3 jumps to the right)

You should end up on number 28.

*Now subtract 10.* (That means you want to take away 1 ten, which means you jump up one space).

You should now be on number 18.

*Now add 21.* (That means you want to add 2 tens and 1 one, which means you would jump down 2 spots and to the right 1 spot).

You should now be on number 39.

See if you can do some challenges at home to help you improve your skills with adding and subtracting using the Hundreds Chart.
