Product Description
This product contains 5 games:
Set 1 - Decimal Fraction and picture (included as a PREVIEW)
Set 2 - Fractions of 100 and picture
Set 3 - Fractions of 100 and simplified Fractions
Set 4 - Percentage and Picture
Set 5 - Simplified Fraction and Picture

There are two CONVERSION TABLES, one including percentage. DIRECTIONS are also included. There are 53 uniform cards in each set and you can mix and match according to the needs of your learners.

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 lot. They are the fun that worksheets can't provide.

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 there's no better homework. Including the game in a Maths Centre has the same learning value (through repetition).

The Conversion Chart helps to scaffold the learning and make it inclusive. With the chart your intervention kids can play with anyone and you are differentiating. Meanwhile everyone is consolidating the concept of equivalence.
