2 more, 2 less

How are your students doing with understanding 2 more and 2 less?  Mine are doing very well with 1 more and 1 less but are having a harder time understanding 2 more and an even more difficult time with 2 less.  Since they love playing games I have been using this I Have... Who Has...? game this week for practice.
I have included a mini-chart for teaching and review.  It could then be hung on your math wall for a visual.  There are 30 playing cards so if you are lucky enough to have a smaller class a few students will need to have 2 cards.  I also included a student sheet so you can do an independent check of student progress.
 
I would love to giveaway a copy to the first 2 followers who leave a comment on this post.  Don't forget your email!  If you miss out, no worries I am selling this activity for $1.  You can find it at my TPT store by clicking on the picture.

    This is super cute Laureen! Is it new? This is a concept second graders have trouble with as well. Great mental math activity!

    1. Thanks :) I used it last year too. It's a concept that is so easy for some, but really challenging for others!
