Make 10

The boys and I just finished several rousing rounds of Make 10.  Make 10 is a great twist on Go Fish! and a wonderful review of math facts that equal 10.  All you need is a deck of cards or 2-4 sets of index cards numbered 0-10.  This will be enough for 2-3 kids to play.  With the deck of cards, the Queen=0 and the Ace=1.  Remove all the other face cards.  Shuffle the cards, then deal 7 cards to each player and place the rest in a pile in the center of the table or floor.  Take turns asking each other for cards to complete the pair to make 10.  For example, if Alexander is holding a 7, 4, and a Q, he would ask John Paul or me for either a 3, 6, or 10. 
With school around the corner and blisteringly HOT days outside, take some time to relax and sneak in a bit of review.  Enjoy some fun time with the kiddos then let them play on their own.
