I have been teaching for more than 30 years as a primary teacher, principal, guidance officer and learning support teacher. I am now semi-retired and teach intervention part time. My shop contains many of my intervention resources and many can be used for differentiation, in learning centres and with small groups. Mostly, they are screeners to identify skill deficits and games to target those deficits and consolidate learning in a motivating way.

This product contains:

--- names
--- MAB
- Directions
- COON CAN NUMBER FAMILIES card game (bonus)

I use DONKEY in my intervention sessions because it is so much fun and my kids love it. I target specific skill deficits, then I teach explicitly, then I play games to consolidate. It works!

You can use the cards in many ways without playing DONKEY. I use this set for sequencing still (tens numbers) but it has been a great asset when teaching kids how to distinguish between teen and tens numbers. I find this is a persistent skill deficit and unless it is addressed with explicit teaching and consolidation, it doesn't go away by magic.

I have added the COON CAN game because some of my older kids need to think a little harder than DONKEY and this game has strategy (as well as targetting skill deficits). It takes longer than DONKEY which is a 1-5 minute game, but it requires higher level thinking. I can take 10 - 15 minutes.

Both games would be suitable for a Maths Centre when you are consolidating numbers to 100.

I have bundled the 1-21 and the 1-100 games at a discounted price if you want to go that way.
