Free to celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week!
I created these cards for my students to work on combinations for those important anchor numbers - 5, 10, and 20. My students seemed fluent with combinations for anchor numbers when they used ten frame cards, but had trouble transferring from ten frames to numerals. With these cards, we can practice adding with both numerals and ten frame cards, to better connect the visual and auditory pieces as we develop fact fluency.
I print multiple sets of these cards on different colors of cardstock, and give each group of players a different color. We use them to play Go Fish and Memory to practice combinations for each of the anchor numbers. Eventually, I take away the ten frame cards and students have to rely on their memories to play with just the numeral cards.
