Wish Fish – number facts and number bonds to 10

Children think there are lots of sums to learn to make 10, but they can usually remember 9,1 and 10, 0 and 5, 5 with ease. They only have to remember 6,7,8 and their ‘friend’. If you place the fish vertically so they show 10,9,8,7,6, and 5 they will then see the 5,4,3,2,1,0 pattern on the other side. The fishy pairs face each other as if kissing.

They also have to realize that 6 and 4 will give the same answer as 4 and 6. There will be no change to the answer.  (Just as if Chloe and Sarah take the register to the office and swap sides and walk back as Sarah and Chloe, there is no actual change.)

Playing Pairs Games is the main game to play with these cards. Place one set of cards face down and one player picks up two cards. If they are not a pair, they put them back on the table face down. If they are a pair, they look at the numbers e.g. 6 and 4 and place them at their side. (Kissing noise usually accompanies this especially if girls playing.)

They continue until all pairs are allocated and the winner is the one with most pairs. For the next game add another full set of fish and finish with the full 36.
