    • Single digit addition cards for numbers 1-10 to practice facts within 20
    • Single digit subtraction cards for 0-10 to practice facts within 10

    ★ A recording sheet is also provided if you would like some additional accountability for your students.

    Use independently as flash cards or to play an individual game. (For example, if using as an early finisher activity, students can try to see how many cards they can get before centers is over.) Or, they can play with a partner to play these games:

    • War – each play flips over a card. Solve the addition or subtraction problem. Whoever has the larger number wins (or smaller number, to change things up!)
    • Kaboom or Bang! – see below for how to play

    How to Play:

    1. Spread the cards out into a pile
    2. Choose a card from the pile
    3. Read the card. If you can read the card, keep it. If you can’t, put the card back. (If they are playing with a partner or group, I suggest having them help the student read the word if they missed it so they can learn it for next time). :)
    4. Special Cards
    • Shark! – Put all of your cards back into the pile
    • Minnow – Draw another card
    • Lose a turn – If playing with a partner or group, you lose a turn
    • Skip – If playing with a partner or group, you skip the person who has a turn after you

    ★ Use all the cards or choose which cards to use based on the math facts your students are learning.

    to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
    Given a two-digit number, mentally find 10 more or 10 less than the number, without having to count; explain the reasoning used.
    Compare two three-digit numbers based on meanings of the hundreds, tens, and ones digits, using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons.
    Mentally add 10 or 100 to a given number 100–900, and mentally subtract 10 or 100 from a given number 100–900.

    Add and subtract within 20, demonstrating fluency for addition and subtraction within 10. Use strategies such as counting on; making ten (e.g., 8 + 6 = 8 + 2 + 4 = 10 + 4 = 14); decomposing a number leading to a ten (e.g., 13 - 4 = 13 - 3 - 1 = 10 - 1 = 9); using the relationship between addition and subtraction (e.g., knowing that 8 + 4 = 12, one knows 12 - 8 = 4); and creating equivalent but easier or known sums (e.g., adding 6 + 7 by creating the known equivalent 6 + 6 + 1 = 12 + 1 = 13).
