Begin this game by placing the cards facing down. Take turns turning over two cards at a time. The object of the game is to get a match with a domino card and an equation. This game focuses on doubles.
Have students fill in the chart below with numbers 0-10. Every box needs to have a number in it. The numbers can be in any order. The first person flips a card. The number cards are in the download.

Owen finds the number five and colors it in.
Owen's partner Finn takes a card; he gets a three. He needs to find the number seven on the board and color it in.

I blogged about this here. The students play charades using our vivid verb cards. Students make illustrations to go with the vocabulary words.
In this fun game, two players put a card on their foreheads (the teacher hands them the card). The audience shouts out the SUM. The two players need to look at the other persons card to figure out what card in on their head.
