Product Description
This product contains 6 games:
Set 1 - Fractions of 100 and picture (included as a PREVIEW)
Set 2 - Simplified Fraction and Percentage

Set 4 - Fractions of 100 and Simplified Fraction
Set 5 - Decimal Fraction and picture
Set 6 - Picture and Percentage

Also included are DIRECTIONS and a CONVERSION TABLE. There are 53 cards in each set.

I have included Set 1 as a PREVIEW so you can download and play with your students to see if DONKEY is the game for you. I'll be surprised if you don't love it and come back for the set. They are cheap and the reason is that I am convinced we don't play enough games to learn. They are the fun that worksheets can't provide and it's my experience that your intervention group will learn faster.

The directions for DONKEY are simple. Just deal out all the cards. Players (up to 6) put down their pairs at the beginning of their turn and say what is on the card pairs. Then they offer their hand, face down and fanned out, so the next player can pick one of their cards before they have their turn. They cannot see the card they choose. The second player now puts down any pairs they have, saying the name of the fraction as they do. Play continues this way until the DONKEY is the only card left. That player is the LOSER.

I use games like DONKEY in intervention every day. When I can I send the game home for family fun time and there's no better homework.

The Conversion Chart helps to scaffold the learning and you can put the games in a Maths Centre. With the chart your intervention kids can play with anyone and you are being inclusive and differentiating. Meanwhile everyone is consolidating the concept of equivalence.
