Hello all! 🙂

Here are some games that we have been playing lately to develop number sense. The first is called **“Oh No! 20!”.** It’s from Marilyn Burns, and works on fluency with addition and subtraction – but more importantly it’s a strategy game, so children (and adults) of all ages like it! Take a regular deck of cards and remove the 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10. The goal is to force your partner to get to – or go over – 20 as a sum. The instructions for the game can be found by clicking on this link: oh-no-20 (there are 2 pages!). For the French version, click here.

Another game we have been playing is called “**High Roller**“. It’s a dice game for operational fluency that’s easy to adapt for different grade levels simply by changing the dice from a regular 6-sided one to one with 10 sides. The instructions are here: high-roller For the french version, click here!
