A game to practice number bonds of multiple of 5s
We played a game called Corner game (from the RightStart Math Curriculum). We dealt out 4 cards for each player. In this basic version, there are two rules for connecting the cards -- the sides touching each other must have: 1) Same color and 2) Either same number or the numbers have to add up to 5, 10, 15 or 20. But only the multiples of 5s count towards the total score. At first, I was concerned that the rule is too complex for a 7 years old. But Jin got it and immediately looked for pairs of 10s with the same color. Adding up the total score seems to be a good exercise.
