When playing a math game, do your kids count the objects on cards to figure out a number? How do they combine quantities? Do they count all the objects or count up from one of the numbers? What addition strategies are they using?
Stack the Deck will help you address these questions and more! This product is a simple card game that helps to reinforce/develop number sense. It is appropriate for K-1 classrooms and it addresses the following standards:
1.OA.6 Demonstrate fluency with addition/subtraction to 18
K.CC.7 Identify whether the number of objects in a group is greater/less/equal to the number of objects in another group
Played in the same manner as "war", there are 12 separate decks of cards (0 - 10, each set with a different theme). Themes include school, farm, breakfast, space, medical stuff, construction, picnic, kitchen stuff, police, cars, bugs, and jungle. Your kids will quickly develop a favorite and will want to play it daily.
I've included the directions for 2 other variations of play, each one increasing in difficulty. Your entire classroom can play at one time (in groups of 2 to 3) after which it can be placed in a math tub for additional opportunities to explore.
There are 133 slides + 1 title page + 1 credit page + 1 page of instructions.
