Tiny Polka Dot: Number-Loving Learning Fun!
How do you create 16 simple math games with 66 cards? Using tiny polka dots, of course! This unassuming deck comes in 6 "suits" of different colors representing numbers 0-10. Each suit represents these numbers differently: characters, 10-frames, domino rows, different-sized polka dots, etc. Each game is made from using these suits together or separately: for example, PowerDot (equivalent to War) is made by shuffling several decks together and dealing 11 cards to each player. Hungry Numbers is a simpler game which involves matching a "polka dot suit" card to the appropriate "character suit" (0-5), and Dot Tens is the same concept but uses different suits of dots 0-10. Each game reinforces a different numerical concept; PowerDot demonstrates correspondence and comparative operations, while the other two reinforce counting and matching. Other games range in complexity and teach different skill sets. And of course, the cards provide an excellent base for creating your own math (and even logic) games! For 1-6 players.
