This package includes one GAME BOARD and 45 cards of numbers from 0 to 9. It was developed to help my students with mental arithmetic. The game format ensures they have fun at the same time.
To start with I provide 15 counters or a number line, depending on ability. I have included a 15 number line with boxes for those students who are still at this level with addition.
The object of the game is to place 3 cards in a row that add to 15 on their 3x3 board . Cards cannot be moved once they are placed unless the grid is full. This not only involves addition, it also requires the players to identify the difference between 15 and the sum of two digits. There is an element of subtraction involved. As players become proficient at the game they also use logic strategies in placing their number cards.
It's great to see them develop the confidence at these foundation number facts. It's a quick game and I use it regularly for those students who enjoy it and need consolidation.
You can progress from this game to 21 which is similar, but adds the novelty of WILD CARDS for more able students.
I have lots of games that target foundation numeracy skills in my store at www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/learning-solutions.
