Adding Nine is easy if you know the trick! These turkeys will help the children practice this skill with an "Old Maid" type of game!

Why use Thanksgiving Themed Turkey Adding Nines Matching Game Freebie? Research tells us that playing games are a great way to get children to practice important skills in a fun way! The more they play, the more the skill will develop!

How it works: This game gives the children practice with the "nine trick" (one less than +10!) in a fun way. This game is set up like the game "Old Maid", where the last "turkey" to get the final card becomes "Thanksgiving Dinner". My students love this game! (Shhhh, don't tell them they're practicing math skills!)

What’s included: This freebie has 10 turkey addition pairs with nines, and 2 Thanksgiving Dinner Cards. (Only use one of these per game… it’s the “Old Maid” card!) Wait until you hear them giggling over that turkey card!
