Your students will love helping the dogs find their doghouse by finding combinations of two numbers with a sum of 20. Simply print out the game boards and dog cards. Laminate. Cut apart the cards. An optional recording sheet can also be printed out if you wish to review student work. That's it!
Each player takes a game board.
Shuffle all the cards and place them in a face down stack.
Turn over the top card and place it next to the facedown pile—this is the discard pile.
Players take turns either taking the top card in the face down stack or the top card in the discard pile, if there is one.
The player reads the number on the dog card. He/she then looks at his/her game board to see if the number can be added to the number in any of his/her dog houses to make a sum of 20.
If the player has a match, he/she says the number sentence (“14 + 6 = 20”) and places the dog card on top of the dog house with the number used to complete the number sentence.
If there is no match on the players board, he/she places the card face up on the discard pile.
If a player gets a “take 2” special card he/she can take 2 cards on that turn. “Take 3” entitles the player to 3 cards. “Everyone takes 1 card” means all players take a card at the same time. Unused cards are put face up on the discard pile.
When all the cards in the face down stack have been used, shuffle the discard pile and continue playing until one player fills all his/her dog houses.
