Without fail, one of my children will count the teen numbers in the cutest, most incorrect way possible. It goes something like, “ten, eleven, twelve, thirteen, horteen, hifteen, sisteen…” and on and on and you get the point. It’s always a win when I can get my children to count numbers 1-10 in the correct order and with the proper names, but then they completely wreck the teen numbers! Today, I’m excited to share with you a FREE Printable that will give your students a variety of ways to practice counting and saying the teen numbers. This Teens Number Matching Game for Tens Place Value will be the perfect addition to your classroom!

Children should work in pairs or threes when playing this game.
Player #1 gives the tens bundle 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 tens bundle cards.
The game continues until all number cards have been found and matched.
