PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This product is an exciting subtraction twist on the "Rock, Paper, Scissors" hand game. It is aligned with Common Core Standards for 1st/2nd grade (1.OA.6, 2.OA.2) and covers a variety of subtraction facts within 20. There are 10 pages with a total of 42 playing cards. This game works wonderfully as a partner activity, math tub, math center or math station. It works well as a tutoring or enrichment activity too! I also like to use it during math small group or guided lessons by making multiple copies of the playing cards and partnering up my students for play. This is a fun way to practice subtraction fact fluency and is a favorite with my class!

Directions:
Deal out all cards into two piles face down (one pile for each player). Both players draw a card from their pile. Each player must read the number sentence aloud and solve it correctly. Once answers have been given, players lay their cards down to see who has won the round. Rock beats scissors, scissors beats paper, and paper beats rock. If a WILD card is drawn, the player may choose rock, paper, or scissors for that round. If it is a tie, both cards are returned to the middle of each player's stack. The winner of the round sets both cards into a separate pile of his/her winnings. Play continues until all cards are gone. The player with the greater number of cards in his/her winnings pile at the end of the game is the overall winner.

I have many other versions of my Rock Paper Scissors game that you can find by clicking on the "Rock, Paper, Scissors" custom tab on the left toolbar of my store or by clicking the links below.

On  March 24, 2013,  Evelyn B. asked:
Hi! I love your Rock, Paper, Scissor game. I notice though that you state they are aligned to the core, but are listed as K-3 grade appropriate. The standards for each grade are quite different. Does this mean that you include all standard expectations within your games? (tiered level) For a kindergarten class, 2nd/3rd grade standard problems wouldn't be appropriate. I would hate to buy the games and find that there are only a few kindergarten appropriate problems.
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  March 24, 2013Mary Lirette answered:
Hi there! On each game I state the Common Core Alignment on the product description and the title page (first thumbnail image). Some games align with more than one grade level. For example, the subtraction to 20 game aligns with 1st grade (CCSS 1.OA.6) and 2nd grade (CCSS 2.OA.2). The grade span tags do not necessarily reflect only the Common Core aligned grades. I have tagged multiple grade levels so that the buyer can determine whether or not the game will work as enrichment or remediation for their students. I have kindergartners who are already successful at adding and subtracting to 20, even though it is not a standard that we cover in K. I allow them to play this game as an enrichment activity since they are way passed addition and subtraction to 10. Also, you have the option of omitting the cards that are too challenging (or too easy). For my kiddos that are still working on subtracting to 10, I remove the cards that cover above 10 and make duplicate copies so that they have enough cards for a good game. Of course, when you make multiple copies the kids will get a card with a certain problem on it more than once. I like it that way, though, because it is extra exposure to the fact and helps build autonomy. :) I hope this answers your question!

How about subtraction addition to 100. We go up to this in 2nd and this looks too fun!
