This game is one of the popular "I Have. Who Has?" games. There are 10 cards. The cards have hands holding up fingers. The student counts the fingers on his/her cards to know what number he/she has. I have included only 10 cards so that you can use this game at the beginning of the year to show small groups of students the procedures for playing this game. I find that especially at the beginning of the year, my students have difficulty focusing if there is too big of a group playing the game.
The common core standard covered by this game is:
K.CC.4. Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities; connect counting to cardinality.
