1. My pleasure Matt! Thanks for stopping by. :)

2. I teach 5th Grade Math. Thanks for the ideas. Following you from the Blog Hop. I'd love for you to follow back:)

1. I certainly will! :) I loved teaching 5th grade! :)

3. You could adjust this for older kids by letting kids draw more cards and having them use a decimal. You could also compete for the smallest number.

1. Awesome ideas! Thanks for sharing! :)
