As salamu alaikum

 As you know we use Saxon Math and in there they have a daily routine with the 100 number board.  The student has to put their finger on a number and you tell them to add 10, subtract 10, add1, and subtract 1 as you say this they move to the appropriate number on the board.  My son was getting tired of this so I decided to make it a little more fun.  So this is how it’s done.


Spinner or die with the numbers 1 and 10.

100 number chart or board

a game piece.

 How to play.

 Pick a number and put the game piece on it.

Spin or roll whichever number you get you can choose to add or subtract.  The goal is to get back to the number you started on. (The student will have to use some serious thinking skills to figure out how to get back to the home number. Should you add or subtract 10 or 1 to get back?)
