Use place value skills to mentally add and subtract 10 or 100 to a given number with this set of worksheets.

Skip Counting by 10 and 100

Are your students able to mentally determine a number that is 10 or 100 more or less than a given number? Being able to use place value to mentally add and subtract is an important skill that 2nd-grade students work on throughout the year. 

Teach Starter has created a set of 3 worksheets that you can use with your students when mentally adding or subtracting 10 or 100 to a number. The numbers used in these worksheets range from 100 – 1,200.

Students can complete the worksheets independently, in pairs, or in small groups. These would make a great for checking understanding of the concept. The following pages are included with this download:

  • Double-sided worksheet practicing 10 more and 10 less
  • Double-sided worksheet practicing 100 more and 100 less
  • Double-sided worksheet practicing a combination of 10 or 100 more or less

An answer key is included with your download to make grading fast and easy!  

Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding 

In addition to independent student work time, use this worksheet as an activity for:

  • Guided math groups
  • Lesson warm-up
  • Lesson wrap-up
  • Fast finishers 
  • Homework assignment
  • Whole-class review (via smartboard)

As an extension, challenge students to create their own “thousands chart” instead of a hundreds chart. Each box would be skip counting by 10 instead of 1, and therefore one chart would have 1,000. Then, ask students to create a set of clues for coloring their thousands chart and trade with a classmate.

Encourage students to use physical manipulatives such as base ten blocks to provide additional support. Demonstrate how a hundreds chart can be used to help as well. Once students are successful and confident using the manipulatives, you can switch to having them attempt mental calculations.
