Below you will find 3 fun ways that you can use the Ones Matching Game printable with your students.
Grab Bag Matching
Students can play this game alone or with a partner.
Players will scatter the button cards around the table and place the number cards inside of the grab bag.
Students will pull a number out of the grab bag and find it’s match on the table by counting the button cards.
The game continues until all numbers have been matched with their proper button card.
Traditional Matching Game
This method of the matching game is traditional.
The game can be played with one or two players.
Students will scatter the number cards and button cards around the table.
Players take turns finding a number that matches with it’s proper button card.
The game continues until all cards have been matched.
Tip: Students can place the number cards in a pile in the center of the table faced down and take turns taking one card off the top of the pile and then find it’s button card match!
Hide and Find Matching Game
This method of using the Ones Matching Game cards is my favorite!
Children should work in pairs or threes when playing this game.
Player #1 gives the button cards to player #2 and #3.
Players #2 and #3 sit with their back to the classroom or facing a wall so that he/she can’t see what player #1 is doing.
Player #1 takes the stack of number cards and hides them around the classroom.
When player #1 is finished hiding all the number cards around the classroom then Players #2 and #3 are tasked with the job of finding all the number cards and properly matching them with the button cards.
The game continues until all number cards have been found and matched.
