I like to prepare the kids before they begin clipping and counting with their cards. We play a quick addition game where I ask and show the numbers on my hands: “How many more do I need to make ten if I have 2?” and I show them the number two on my fingers.

They will then tell me how many they think I will need and so on. We do this until I feel like everyone in the class understood the concept to play with their cards.
