Help young mathematicians read and interpret numbers from 1 to 10 and sequence them correctly with this card game. Using a deck of cards and two to three classmates, have one player hand out ten cards to each gamer and then put the extra cards in a draw pile. Without looking, players will arrange their ten cards face-down in two rows of five cards. The first player will draw a card from the draw pile, for example, a 6 of spades. Black is now indicated as their color to play for the game. They will then replace the 6th card in their arrangement with the 6 of spades and then play the replaced card if they can, and will keeping playing until they are stopped. Player 2 will do the same. The game ends when one player has all ten cards of the correct color (black or red) sequentially placed correctly in their arrangement. Note: This game needs to be modeled with teacher support several times to help learners get the hang of it.
