Math with a Deck of Cards

One of my favorite tools to use in math is a deck of cards.

Yep. 

They are SO versatile! I can pretty much teach/review any skill with a deck of cards by my side.

Here are few examples of what we use them for.

(my pictures are not perfect...because well, some are old. I've been at this a long time - ha!)

addition war


2-digit war

place value




subtracting across zeros



comparing numbers (this was a fun version during October)

breaking apart ones to add

more and less

sequencing numbers

missing addends - these magnetic 10 frame boards are so cool! I can't find these exact boards anymore, but HERE are a bunch of different kinds


I use them all the time as a random number generator! 

OH! And we love using GIANT cards too! Makes math so much more fun! lol Find them HERE




I have 2 different versions in my TpT STORE: 1st grade and 2nd grade (and 3rd/4th)
