And let's blog about Math Games...

Here are the directions for two Flip It games to play for a target number (like 5 or 10).

How to play Flip It. Flip It can be played like concentration. You can play different versions. With this set, play for a target number. You lay the cards out face down. Players turn over 2 cards. Here is where it changes. Players are looking for a target number instead of 2 cards that are the same. If the target number is 5, players try to turn over 2 cards whose sum (or to take it up a notch - difference) is 5. Players have to identify the sum of the cards whether it is 5 or not. If it is 5, they get to keep the cards. If not, they turn the cards over and the next player goes.

How to play Flip It Fast with 2 players. You can play for a target number or for greater numbers. Divide the cards into 2 stacks face down. Each player gets a stack. One player says go and both players turn over their top card at the same time. If the sum of the cards matches the target number (ie 5), the first player to call Fast Fives and correctly say the addition sentence collects all the cards in the discard piles. The player with the most cards wins.

I also have 2 Flip It games in my Fish & Friends series. A Fast Fives version and a Base Ten version. Both have accountability or morning work worksheets.

Don't forget to check back Friday for Freebie Fridays.
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
