Reflection: Advanced Students Go Fish - Section 3: Playing the Game


For those students who are already fluent with their complements of 10, I offer the same game but working with 20.  The task will be for students to use four cards to make 20.  This way they are seeing who twenty is made of two groups of 10.  The game is played the same way but with a different recording sheet (see section resource in this reflection).  

**To further advance the difficulty of the game, you could challenge them to make 20 using three cards.  This way they would have to combine two numbers take a ten out of the totally and then find a third card to complement the remainder to make 20.  For example, if I had 9&5.  I know that it makes 14, so now I need a six to go with the four.  You will have to change the rules on the recording sheet to say three cards instead of 4.
