This is the level 1 card game from the resource "3's A Charm St. Patrick's Multiplication Leveled Card Games". This game is good for all abilities and ages, so it can be played without the other leveled decks. The only difference is that the original resource has 3 more decks of cards. Thus, the original has many more opportunities for differentiation and uses the WHOLE-PART-PART-WHOLE method plus pictorial representations for increased automaticity.
However, this little game is a big hit with kids and adults alike.Play it at home, play it at school, play it during indoor recess. It's just plain fun! My family loves to play this game.
The rules for level 1 are exactly like the rules for the other decks.So, this is actually a good way for you to "try out" this product and get the kids ready to play the rest if you decide to purchase the original!
