With Halloween just about over, I typically am ready to move on toward Thanksgiving and other fun fall themes in the classroom. It can be fun to add some seasonal twists into our math centers, and in November, that often means turkey time! After playing our Turkey 10 Frames Math Game, we were ready to move on to what we call the “tricky teens.” This Turkey 20 Frames Math Game is a great way to work on teen numbers – and have fun!

Turkey 20 Frames Math Game
This game is just as simple to prepare as the 10 Frame Version – exactly the same in fact!
I printed out the turkey 20 frames cards and laminated them for repeated use. I printed 2 sets, that way there were plenty of them in the math center so multiple kids could play and not feel like they were waiting around for cards.
I then printed out enough of the recording sheets for the kids to use (and a few extras, because some kids love to go to that center more than once!)
Since my kids had already played the ten frame version, this game was cinch to catch onto.
The thing we work on most with 20 frames is not counting from 1, but rather “seeing 10” and counting on. This can be tricky at first, but with practice it gets easier!
We are starting to understand that teen numbers are “10 and some more,” so counting on from 10 lets us see that more clearly. Plus, we are pretty familiar with 10 frames at this point in the year.
The kids pick a turkey card, count the teen number in the 20 frame, and color the turkey that matches!
They keep playing until their recording sheet is full and they have colored all numbers 11-20.
