Playing Card Addition/Subtraction

I am always trying to find easy, new ways to expose "A" to math. I was exploring The Lesson Plan Diva's blog and found a super simple idea picking two playing cards and using that for the numbers to add or subtract. She even has a free printable. Even though this was a relatively simple concept my son loved it. He didn't want to stop and he wrote different equations all over the paper. I guess this was a real winner we could do over and over again. In fact, he already asked me to print off another sheet.


  1. Love this idea! My boys would definitel love it! Thanks for linking to the free printable!

  2. This is SO SMART, Sarah! My son would LOVE this! Thanks for sharing. I just gave you with the Versatile Blogger award - stop by to find out more about it:

  3. I did this with my 2nd graders for addition & subtraction fun and even 3rd graders (multiplication!) and it was always such a hit! I am seriously shaking my head that I completely forgot about it and have not done it with my kindergartener! She would LOVE this!!!!

    Thanks for linking to the Sunday Showcase & hope to see you again this week!
