Next, I have a few 100 grids with just a few numbers written on them. You could have the kids fill these out as an entry task or review. I use them as ways to practice following directions. I will pass out a copy to all of my students and give directions on which numbers to fill out based upon the numbers already provided. For example: Write the number that is 10 more than 37. Write the number that is 3 less than 21. The great news about this activity is you can do this activity over several days because you won’t be filling in many numbers all at one time.

Even though she created them for her kindergarteners, these worksheets provide a fun way for second graders to work with a number grid while following written directions. Here is just one example of Lil’ Country Kindergarten’s finished number grids:
