Ditch the Flash Cards! This greedy squirrel needs to find some acorns before winter arrives! Is one acorn enough? Never! This squirrel needs 7 + 8 acorns. Quick, get 15 acorns before another squirrel finds them!
This matching style game covers addition facts for numbers 1 - 9 on colorful double sided cards (See preview file and Thumbnails for details). Players take turns revealing one addition problem (a Squirrel card) to see how many acorns the Greedy Squirrel wants to find. Then the player selects one "Acorn" card to try to match the answer to the Greedy Squirrel's addition problem. If the player gets a match, he or she gets to go again. After all matches have been found, the winner is the player who has collected the most acorns for the Greedy Squirrel.
Cards come in two decks:
*The orange squirrel "Problem Cards" deck contains 81 addition problems (numbers 1 - 9).
*The green acorn "Solution Cards" deck contains 81 answer cards that match the problems from the orange squirrel deck.
You are downloading a zip file that contains a .pdf of the game cards (both decks) and a .pdf of the game rules.
The game cards are centered both horizontally and vertically for easy double sided printing.
I have printed my set onto (8.5 X 11) sheets of card stock, but I have also printed them onto paper and laminated them. I generally print enough sets for my students to play in groups of 3 or 4.
Have Fun! Joseph Huston
