Product Description
If the children know the +9 trick, they are well on their way to fact fluency. This game will help them practice that important trick!

Do you find your students have the toughest time learning the facts with nines?

Brain research tells us that adding an element of fun helps children remember. One of the second grade math standards is CCSS.Math.Content.2.OA.B.2 Fluently add and subtract within 20 using mental strategies.

This game gives the children practice with the "nine trick" (one less than +10!) in a fun way. This product explains how to use the "nine trick" in both addition and subtraction, and give loads of practice with each... both with single digits and double digits.

Once they master the trick, it's easy peasy!

Another one is:CCSS.Math.Content.2.NBT.B.8 Mentally add 10 or 100 to a given number 100–900, and mentally subtract 10 or 100 from a given number 100–900.

There are several versions of the game, with easier cards, harder cards, addition and subtraction. There are a couple of suggestions for use, or you can make up your own!

One version of this game is set up like the game "Old Maid", where the last player to get the final card becomes "Spring Rain". My students really enjoy this game, and there are always plenty of giggles to see where the "Spring Rain" lands!
