Deal Out 20


I feel a little like David Letterman this week, but I'm opening the 'viewer' mailbag and responding to some questions and suggestions I've received.

First up, Beth wanted a version of Deal Out a 10 that would challenge her higher kiddos by using two playing cards and having the kids build to 20.  Tah dah!  I present you with Deal Out 20.  Click here to grab yours.  Thanks, Beth, for that great idea!

Tune in tomorrow night for more viewer mail.  :)

  4. Love your idea. It has me thinking:
    For my 4/5 students they could make it a game for two or more players, to build to instant calculations.
    1. They could deal one or two cards, depending on their ability.
    2. (Add them up and) determine how many more they need to reach 20, using ten frames.
    3. Once they have some speed, they could work it out mentally and check the number needed on a 'difference grid' (just made up that name). e.g 2>18, 3>17, 4>16 etc.
    4. The difference (number needed to make 20) is their score. Start another round.
    5. Add up scores with a calculator after, for example, 5 minutes.
