Our older kids have all learned to count to twenty fairly easily. However, at some point after that they’ve all become stuck–one at 39, another at 59, and another at 79.

That was until we spent time with a hundreds chart.
A hundreds chart makes it easier for kids to see number patterns.

My two older kids have also enjoyed filling in their own hundreds chart. This makes it easy to determine if your child has really grasped the concept of repetitive number patterns. However, write all the numbers can be cumbersome.
