I'm a huge fan of anything that doesn't require a lot of cutting, laminating, etc... even though I seemed to be drawn to those kind of projects. Go figure! Anyway I have used these math games for the past 2 years in my classroom for my firsties, and I plan on using them this year in 3rd grade as well. They're so easy. I usually just print out the game directions and laminate them. Then you have 2 choices for the game cards. If you have any sets of playing cards you're not using (BTW there are sets in the Dollar Section @Target) you can use those, otherwise you can print, laminate, and cut the matching zebra cards to go with. It's usually pretty simple. The kiddos are usually pretty good about understanding the directions and playing. Right before summer comes or sometimes before winter break I send a set home with my kids too so they can play and practice at home. Hopefully someone finds these useful like I have the past 2 years!!
