Tens Go Fish!

Tens Go Fish is a fun card game we play in class to increase fluency with our combinations of ten. The game is played similarly to the traditional game of Go Fish. However, instead of asking for a double (example: if you have a three, ask for a three), students ask for a number that would give them a combination of ten. If you had a three in your hand, you would ask for a seven to make the combination of ten complete.

In order to play this game, you will need only a set of number cards. If you do not have the official cards at home, you can use regular playing cards (take out the face cards) or even Uno cards. You child has a copy of the game cards in his/her book in the classroom as well.
General cards available to print online include: picture cards or number cards.

My second grader just came home with this game for homework. I think this is a great way to get parents involved with their child's homework and a great way to introduce math equations!
