0-20 Number Matching Game

Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 7 pages | Grades: PK - 1

Match different representations of numbers 0 to 20.

Use this resource when teaching students to represent whole numbers from 0 to 20 in different forms.

The number forms include:

  • Standard form
  • Written form
  • Dots
  • Pictorial model

Print the cards on cardstock and cut them out. Then, use them in a variety of ways, including:

  • As a math center activity – students match the cards together by number
  • As a ‘Go Fish’ game where the four number representations form a book
  • As a random group generator – give each student a card. When they find their matches, they have their group of 4
  • As a memory game – using a small number of cards, lay them facedown in a grid. Students turn over two cards. If they match (any of the number representations) they keep the cards. If not, they flip them back over. This can be played individually, with a partner or small group, or as a whole class
