# 5 Plus

### Purpose:

The purpose of this activity is to help your child to practise the 5 plus addition facts.

### Link to the Number Framework:

Number Facts, Stage 1-3

### What you need:

• One die
• Pack of cards – use the 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 cards.

### What to do:

Shuffle the cards and deal 5 cards to each player. The first player rolls the dice, (throw again if a 6 comes up) and adds 5 to the number. For example, if they roll a 3, then 3 + 5 = 8. If the player has the total, for example 8, as a card in their hand they can put the card on the table. The next player has a turn. The winner is the first player to put all their cards on the table.

### What to expect your child to do:

Over time expect your child to instantly recall the addition facts of 5 plus.

### Variation:

Roll the dice and ask your child to quickly add 5 to the dice number.
