# Materials: Use a deck of 40 cards: Four suits of A-10. The goal is to make families of three cards that are related by addition or subtraction.

7+3=10
3+7=10

TEKS: (2.5) (C) Use patterns and
relationships to develop strategies to
subtraction facts. Determine patterns
number sentences (including fact
families) such as:
4 +1=5
5-4=1
1+4=5
5-1=4
The “2” on the yellow strip
in the photo does not belong
in this fact family!
Purpose: Students will understand the relationships in numbers by adding and
subtracting a set of numbers that belong in a “fact family.”

Game 4: Fact Family Feud
TEKS:
(1.5) Patterns, relationships, and algebraic thinking. The student recognizes
patterns in numbers and operations. The student is expected to:
(E) identify patterns in related addition and subtraction sentences (fact
families for sums to 18) such as 2 + 3 = 5, 3 + 2 = 5, 5 – 2 = 3, and 5 – 3 = 2.

## Directions:

### Game play – Players check their hand for number combinations that can be used to make a number (1 – 10 ) on the mat. Players draw one card from the pile when it is their turn. The first player to make a number pair for each number (1-10) on their mat wins. See the example for further explanation of gameplay.

Example: Fact Family Feud

Game 5: Slap Facts
TEKS:

(1.5) Patterns, relationships, and algebraic thinking. The student recognizes patterns in numbers and operations. The student is expected to:

# 10 8

(E) identify patterns in related addition and subtraction sentences 2 (fact

families for sums to 18) such as 2 + 3 = 5, 3 + 2 = 5, 5 2 = 3, and 5 3 = 2.

## Directions:

### Game play –The youngest player begins by rolling the dice. The number rolled will be used for the entire round. (The rest of the gameplay is similar to slap jack.) Players take turns flipping over the top card from the deck and placing it into the discard pile face up. Players slap numbers that they need to collect to fill in their fact family mat for the number that was rolled on the dice. The first player to fill in the four number combinations on their mat wins the round.

Example: Slap Facts

## Player 1:

### Player one decides to slap number 7 when she sees it. She did this because she knows 7 combines with 3 to make 10. Once she picks a “Fact Family” to use she only slaps numbers that belong to that set of numbers (7, 3, or 10). After slapping the cards she places them on her mat.

The winner is the
one who fills
their board first!

## Player 2:

Materials:

## Directions:

### player who makes the most sets of fact families is the winner. **See the example for further explanation.

Example: Fact Family Go Fish

## Example:

### When a player thinks they have a set, they must prove it by placing the cards on the game board. The game board helps the players check to see if the numbers are truly a fact family. If the three numbers work in all four combinations, the three numbers are a fact family.

The winner is the
one who makes
the most sets!
