There are several formats of numbers included, so that you can make engaging games for all of your learners. Select from dice, dominoes, numerals, words, ten-frames, base-ten blocks and ones/tens.

You can have your kids match different types of the same number in Memory and Go Fish!

Then, you can use all the different formats for the other games.

Detailed instructions are included. They are formatted as full-size pages, so you can print them that way if you would like. This time around, I printed them 2 to a page (an option in my print settings)and put them together with a book-ring. I’m limited on storage space, so the small size was preferable to me.

The instructions will tell you how many cards you need for each game. Some require only one copy of the cards, but some are better played with larger decks that will require multiple copies. It does seem like a lot of printing, but when your kids begin playing and ask to play again and again the printing will all be worth it!
