"Crossing the Decade" Concentration

Illustrative MathematicsVaries

One of the most common areas that young children struggle with when learning to count forward is crossing from one family to the next, for example getting to 29 in the counting sequence and not knowing what comes next or stating a random decade number. This game supports student development in this area. Students should have beginning knowledge of the counting sequence beyond the 'teen' numbers before playing this game. This game can be introduced whole group on the board by making slightly larger cards and using a sentence pocket chart (or magnetic tape on a magnetic board) to arrange the cards in two arrays face down against the board.
