This is a math game I designed for my class to practice number recognition using numerals, ten frames, and money. Directions for several games are included. Game 1: Students will use a deck of cards and a coloring mat to "chase the gold" at the end of the rainbow. Students must identify the quantity on the card, then color in the coin that has that quantity on it on the rainbow. When all coins of been colored in, the student "wins" the pot of gold. There are some additional cards to liven up the game by winning extra turns or losing one. Game 2: "I Wish I Had Some More Gold". The student must tell "how many more" are needed to reach a target number. Game 3: "Gold!", a game like "Snap". The goals for my students through playing this game are to subitize the numbers and to learn about money. Oh, and the other goal: Have fun while learning!
There are two different sets of cards to play the game: ten frames and money (coins). I have included a "backside" for the playing cards that you can laminate to the back of the cards. Additionally, this packet includes some black & white versions of some of the pages as well as counters to use in lieu of coloring in the coins on the page.
