The perfect activity to help you prepare for the 100th day of school! This set of number mazes helps students gradually learn to count and recognize numbers from 1 to 120. Two differentiated number mazes are provided for each decade (20 to 120). Students begin at 1 and color each number in sequence to complete the maze.
Crayons or markers can be used, but I typically use bingo dotters in my classroom. It’s much faster than coloring and my students LOVE using bingo dotters.
Differentiate the activity for your students by using two different maze sheets. For each decade, one sheet is provided with empty spaces that are not on the counting path. Another sheet with the blank spaces filled in creates a more challenging counting activity for students. I let students select their own page by asking if they would like a “regular” maze or a “challenge” maze. Most students naturally select the page that best fits their needs. Occasionally, I nudge students to make the decision I feel is most appropriate for their own number growth.
