Number Facts, Stage 7

What you need:

Game cards (PDF,84KB) . You can print these or make your own.
Cardboard. (Old cereal boxes are good).
Paper for each player

What to do:

Glue the cards on to cardboard. Cut the game cards, shuffle them and place in a pile face down between the players. Each player writes down 5 numbers between 2 and 9 on a piece of paper for other players to see. Players take turns to turn over a card from the pile and solve it. If the answer is on their piece of paper they cross it off. The card is then replaced at the bottom of the pile. The winner is the first player to cross off all of their 5 numbers.

What to expect your child to do:

Over time expect your child to instantly recall all the division facts.

Variation:

Use the fact cards as flash card and ask your child to solve the facts.
Extend the range of division facts by writing your own facts.
