MathMath should be fun, so please play Math games as a family! Each week I will post a new math game that you can play with your child. (For $2 you can buy dice and playing cards at your local dollar store and be ready to play these games—or ask any interventionist for cards and dice free!) – Math Interventionist Steve Smith
This week’s game: Give Me Ten
Number of Players: 2*
Materials: 1 deck of cards
How to Play
•    Ace is worth 1. Remove the Jokers and face cards. . 

•    Deal 12 cards face up. 

•    Players take turns finding and removing 
combinations of cards that add up to 10. At the end of the round, players keep the combinations they created. Any cards not used in a combination are added to the bottom of the stack to be used in another round. 

•    When both players agree that no more tens are possible, the next 12 cards are dealt face up. 

•    When all of the cards have been used, the player with the most cards wins 1 point. Shuffle the deck and play 5 more rounds. 

•    The winner of the game is the one with the most points. 

*  If you want to add more players, use two decks of cards.
