3. Math Game:
Make Ten Solitaire(1-2 players)
This game is traditionally played as solitaire, but can easily be modified for two players. It allows younger kids to be able to practice their math facts to 10.
Deal the cards into three rows of five face up, the rest are in a pile face down to the side. If you can add two cards that equal the sum of 10, you collect the cards. New cards are dealt into the holes that were left from the cards that were picked up. Face cards (K,Q, J, 10) can only be picked up if you have a matching pair. If you are playing the solitaire version, you win if you can pick up all the cards in the entire deck without getting stuck! If you are playing with two players, and there are no more moves to be made, the player with the most cards at that time is the winner.
Nifty 50 (2 players)
This game is great to develop logical thinking and problem solving, review two digit addition and subtraction regrouping, and is fun! The object is to come up with a math equation that has a sum or difference closest to the number 50. First player to five points is the winner!
Deal all the cards between all the players. Each player turns over four cards and makes a two digit + two digit number sentence or two digit – two digit number sentence that has a solution closest to 50. The equation that is closest to 50 gets one point. IF you can create an equation that is exactly 50, it’s worth 2 points. If both players have the same answer, no one gets a point.
During play, Aces are worth 1, and face cards and 10s are worth 0, other cards are face value. After the cards are used, they are put in a discard pile. We played five rounds with two players in a group, but it can easily be up to four players with two decks of cards. My students used their whiteboards to work out various equations before settling on the one closest to 50.

Week 12Bonjour les amis!This last week of school, we will play the game called "Memory" with our colour cards we made last week. Here's how to play:First, place all the cards face down and mix them up. Next, try to turn over two matching cards to make a pair. Then, each time you turn over a card, say the name of the card in French, even if it is not the card you are hoping for. Every time you make a pair, you can call out “Bravo!” or “Youpi!” If the cards don't match, turn them back upside down and remember what and where they are. Pick up another card, saying its name in French, and try to find its match. Perhaps it will be one of the cards you have already found and turned back over. Good thing you remembered where it was! It is important to always say the name of the colour in French so that you can get better and faster at the language. Ask a family member to join you, taking turns to get the most pairs. It is helpful to teach others what you yourself are learning. It speeds up the learning process and helps your brain grow. I think you will be very successful!To do with adult help:If you have access to a computer and a helpful adult around, here is a website about how to bake French baguettes. You will need time, a hot oven, and a desire to munch on delicious French bread. This bread tastes great with cheese, jam, or butter. It can also be used to dip into sauces or gravies. Maybe you can think of other delicious ways to enjoy French baguettes!How about some music to set you off on your baking adventure? Here is a catchy tune, by Etienne, for you to sing along with while you cook:"Français! Français!" is the title song off the new program by Etienne and Roland Bibeau entitled "Français! Français!". This program includes 10 songs, 10 instrumental versions, 10 full-length music videos with lyrics, 10 Karaoke versions of the videos, over 108 pages filled with research-based activities and games including: KWL's ...www.youtube.com
