Learning Number Facts


Simple games to play at home to practise instant recall of addition and subtraction facts

  • Matching Pairs (pelmanism). Arrange calculation and answer cards, in a grid formation, upside down on a table. Take it in turns to turn over two cards, one at a time, and leave them in position. If they match (calculation = answer), the player keeps those cards. If not, they turn them back over and the next player takes a turn. The aim is to remember where you saw the calculations/answers so that after one card is turned you may remember where the required matching card is positioned. A great game for training the memory as well as learning number facts!
  • Dominoes – match ends to make a given number, e.g. 10. How long a line of dominoes can you make?
  • Snap – at the same time, two players each turn over a number card (e.g. playing cards with the picture cards removed), from two shuffled piles. If they make a given number (e.g. 8), say “Snap!” and keep the pair. The winner is the player with the most cards at the end.
  • ‘Fact Flaps’- use as a prompt to help them ‘peek’ at the answers if stuck when playing a game
