What is included?
Playing cards numbered from 0 to 100. Each “family” of ten such as the ones (1 to 9) has a distinct color and corresponding name to help children remember the numbers in that family. Game cards are included.
Why did we create it?
This is a favorite for kids of all ages. This teacher-designed product was first created when we saw a need for a set of 0 to 100 cards that could easily be broken up by families. Naming the families and coordinating them by color accelerates recognition and makes learning numbers much more fun. Family Cards have been adopted at elementary schools across the United States.
What does it teach?
The Family Cards can be used one-on-one, in a small group and in a whole group. Choose specific families to focus on for sequencing or as a support for building fluency in counting forwards and backwards. The Family Cards are great for working with number identification and number reversals or confusions.
