Math Game for Kids: Snap Plus One {Math with Cards}

176 Flares 176 Flares

This math game for kids makes learning to count fun.  Kids will actually want to practice counting because math with cards feels more like a game than learning.

Kids Activities Blog hopes you enjoy this cute card game called Snap Plus One.

Math Game for Kids

Does your child know how to count to ten or beyond, but always begins at one when they count? Are they working towards adding two collections of items? If so, this game of snap plus one, is a great way to introduce your child to a more efficient strategy for solving number problems.

Instead of always beginning at one when counting, children who can “count-on”, can count on from any given number. When solving number problems, the ability to count on is much more efficient than counting from one.

This math game of snap plus one is a fun way to practice saying the number word just after a given number in the range of one to ten.

Math with Cards

You will need a deck of playing cards. Remove all the picture cards. Ace refers to one in this game.

Snap Plus One

Just like snap, cards are dealt face down to all the players. Each player takes turns to turn one card from their pile over and places this in the middle. However, instead of slapping the pile of cards and saying snap when two cards match, in this game of snap plus one, the pile of cards are snapped only when the new card is one more than the previous card.

For example if 5 is placed in the middle and the new card placed on top is 6, players may slap the pile. The quickest player to slap the pile and say snap picks up all the cards.

When any player runs out of cards, the game is over. The player with the most cards, is the winner.

Just wanted to tell you keep up the fantastic job!

I am really enjoying the theme/design of your
blog. Do you ever run into any browser compatibility problems?
A number of my blog audience have complained about my site not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great
in Firefox. Do you have any advice to help fix this issue?

problems with my latest blog and I would like to find something more secure.

I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any helpful hints for rookie blog writers? I’d really appreciate it.

Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this blog. It’s
simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s tough to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual appeal. I must say you’ve done a superb job with this.
Outstanding Blog!
Do you mind if I quote a few of your articles as long as I provide credit and sources back to your website?
My blog is in the exact same area of interest as yours
and my visitors would genuinely benefit from some
of the information you provide here. Please let me know if
this okay with you. Regards!

most. Can you recommend a good hosting provider at a reasonable price?
Many thanks, I appreciate it!
Very good blog you have here but I was wanting to know if you knew of any discussion boards that cover the same

Howdy! This is my first comment here so I just wanted to give a quick shout out and tell you I genuinely enjoy reading your articles. Can you suggest any other blogs/websites/forums that go over the same subjects? Appreciate it!
Do you have a spam problem on this blog; I also am a blogger, and I was wondering your situation; many of us have created some nice methods and we are looking to swap solutions with others, please shoot me an email if interested.
Please let me know if you’re looking for a article author for your

good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d really like to write some content for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine. Please send me an email if interested. Many thanks!
Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and everything. But imagine if you added some great visuals or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this blog could certainly be one of the most beneficial in its niche. Amazing blog!
Nice blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A design like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog jump out. Please let me know where you got your theme. Kudos
Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having
a tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution
seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your article seem to be running off the screen in Firefox. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue
or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The design look great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon. Many thanks
With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My site has a lot of unique content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it
up all over the web without my permission. Do you know any ways to help reduce content from being stolen?
I’d certainly appreciate it.
Have you ever considered writing an e-book or guest authoring on other websites? I have a blog centered on the same information you discuss and would really like to have you share some stories/information. I know my subscribers would value your work. If you’re
even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an e-mail.

Howdy! Someone in my Myspace group shared this site with us so I came
to look it over. I’m definitely loving the information. I’m bookmarking and will be tweeting this to my followers!
Great blog and outstanding style and design.

Great blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost
on everything. Would you suggest starting with a
free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option?
There are so many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any suggestions? Thanks!
My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he’s tryiong none the less.
I’ve been using Movable-type on a variety of websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform. I have heard great things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it? Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!
Does your website have a contact page? I’m having a tough time locating
it but, I’d like to shoot you an e-mail. I’ve got some suggestions for your
blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way,
great website and I look forward to seeing it improve over
time.
It’s a pity you don’t have a donate button! I’d definitely donate to this superb blog! I suppose for now i’ll settle for bookmarking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account.
Chat soon!
Greetings from Idaho! I’m bored to tears at work so I decided to browse your site on my iphone during lunch break. I love the information you present here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home.
I’m amazed at how quick your blog loaded on my phone .. I’m
not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyways,
awesome blog!
Howdy! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d ask.

a blog article or vice-versa? My site goes over a lot of the same
subjects as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit
from each other. If you might be interested feel free to shoot me an
email. I look forward to hearing from you! Awesome blog by the
way!
Right now it sounds like Movable Type is the top blogging platform available right now.
(from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?
Excellent post however I was wondering if you could write a litte more on this topic? I’d be very grateful if you could elaborate a little bit further.

Thanks!
Good day! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could find a captcha plugin
for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having difficulty finding one?
Thanks a lot!
When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each
time a comment is added I get several emails with the same comment.
Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
Many thanks!
Greetings! This is my first visit to your blog! We are a group of volunteers
and starting a new initiative in a community
in the same niche. Your blog provided us useful information to work
on. You have done a marvellous job!
Hi! I know this is kind of off topic but I
was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?
I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had problems with
hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
Hello there! This post couldn’t be written any better!
I will forward this post to him. Fairly certain he will
have a good read. Thanks for sharing!
Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the
video to make your point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just
posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something informative to read?

Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave
it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off
topic but I had to tell someone!
Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested
to see if it can survive a forty foot drop, just so she
can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views.
I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of your blog?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or
two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
Hi, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just curious if you get
a lot of spam feedback? If so how do you stop it, any
plugin or anything you can recommend? I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so any help is very much appreciated.
This design is wicked! You certainly know how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Excellent job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your website.
It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your theme? Exceptional work!
Howdy! I could have sworn I’ve been to this website before but
after browsing through some of the post I realized it’s new to me. Anyhow, I’m
definitely glad I found it and I’ll be bookmarking and checking back often!
Hey there! Would you mind if I share your blog with my myspace group? There’s a lot of people
that I think would really enjoy your content. Please let me know.
Thanks
Hi, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.

When I look at your website in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet
Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
Other then that, fantastic blog!
Sweet blog! I found it while surfing around on Yahoo News.
Do you have any tips on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Many thanks
Hi! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog. Is it hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can
figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to begin.

Do you have any tips or suggestions? Thank you
Greetings! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when viewing from my iphone. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to fix this problem.
If you have any suggestions, please share. Thanks!
I’m not that much of a internet reader to be honest
but your sites really nice, keep it up! I’ll go ahead and bookmark your website to come back in the future. Many thanks
I really like your blog.. very nice colors & theme. Did you create this website yourself or did you hire someone to do it for you? Plz reply as I’m looking to create
my own blog and would like to find out where u got this from.
appreciate it
Whoa! This blog looks just like my old one! It’s on a entirely different subject but it has pretty much the same page layout and design. Great choice of colors!
Heya just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the images aren’t loading properly.

I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve
tried it in two different browsers and both show the same outcome.

Whats up are using WordPress for your blog platform?
I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and
create my own. Do you require any html coding knowledge to make your
own blog? Any help would be really appreciated!

Whats up this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs
use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Heya! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any methods to prevent hackers?
Hey there! Do you use Twitter? I’d like to follow you if that
would be ok. I’m definitely enjoying your blog and look forward to new updates.
Hello there! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers? I’m kinda paranoid
about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any tips?
Hey there! Do you know if they make any plugins to assist with SEO? I’m trying
to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but
I’m not seeing very good results. If you know of any please share. Cheers!
I know this if off topic but I’m looking into
starting my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get set up?
I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% certain. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
Hmm is anyone else experiencing problems with the pictures on this blog loading? I’m trying to determine
if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog. Any feed-back would be greatly appreciated.
I’m not sure exactly why but this weblog is loading incredibly slow for me.
Is anyone else having this issue or is it a problem
on my end? I’ll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.
Hey! I’m at work browsing your blog from my new apple iphone!
