Fall is in the air, and often times in the classroom that can mean fun themes like pumpkins, leaves… and turkeys! I always love to incorporate new and fun, fall activities into our math centers, and this turkey ten frame math game is a great one!

Turkey Ten Frame Math Game
In this game the students practice identifying numbers in ten frames and matching them with their numerals. It is a perfect activity for fall or Thanksgiving and your kids will love it!
This game is fairly quick to prepare and have ready in your classroom or at home.
I first printed out the turkey ten frame cards and laminated them. This lets me use them next year too and keep them sturdy!
Depending on how many kids you will have at once in a math center, you may want to print two sets.

How to Play
This game was one that my kids caught onto quickly (we have played similar games before) so after explaining the directions, I released them to play on their own.
They picked up a turkey card and counted the dots in the ten frame. As kids get better at subitizing (recognizing sets instantly without counting one by one) they should instantly “read” the ten frames and not need to count.
Then, they found the matching numeral on the recording sheet and colored that turkey!
