Included in this set are numeral, word, ten frame, picture and tally mark cards for every number 0-20.
Ideas for customizing:
1) Review for numbers 0-9 or 10 to start. Add other numbers as they are learned.
2) Print only two formats to start. Print one copy of one format and several copies of the other format. For example, use the number cards as your center pile. Print 3 copies of the word cards to focus on word recognition.
3) Choose any set as your center pile. The best would be the style that the one with which the student is having most difficulty. Helping them to focus on finding formats that they have an easier time recognizing.
4) As the students become more proficient, you can include all the different sets.
Print on card stock and/or laminate the cards. (Card stock is recommended because some children will try to see through the cards.)
I recommend a set of 40-44 of the "Playing" cards for more thorough review. More copies will create a longer game. Less copes will create a shorter game for beginners.
Each type of cards is a different style for easy sorting.
To play: 2-4 players
Place the CENTER cards face down in a pile.
Deal the PLAYING cards equally among players. Place them face down in a pile in front of each player.
Decide the first player.
Flip over one of the CENTER cards.
In clockwise order players flip one card at a time. When a PLAYING card is flipped that matches the CENTER card: SLAP-IT!
The first player to slap the card takes the center pile of cards that have been played and adds them to the bottom of their own pile.
Flip another CENTER card and continue playing.
Game is finished when time is up or one player has all the PLAYING cards.
