My most-viewed post contains a little game called Deal Out a 10. It’s a quick and easy, yet powerful, activity for building an understanding of ten using an ordinary deck of playing cards and a recording sheet with ten-frames. At the request of a reader, I also created Deal Out 20, a version that extends the understanding of ten to making 20.
Tonight, I have yet another version. This one is called 10 Take-Away. This time the ten-frames are filled, and the card drawn is subtracted from ten. Note that when playing any of these games, the face cards are worth 10 and the ace is worth 1.
Can you come up with any other versions? 🙂

Awesome extension, Heidi! I can’t believe I’ve never come across your blog before, but I’m a follower now. 🙂
Thank you for this GREAT freebie! I am definitely going to use it this week… Subtraction is proving a bit tricky for my kinders so I think this will help them out!! 🙂
My pleasure! I hope your students enjoy the game. 🙂
Love it! Thanks for the freebie!

So glad it’s something you can use, Barbara!! 🙂
I absolutely love your blog site! I use so many of your ideas. How about 20 Take Away for another game? (Thinking about your Deal Out 20 game that we use.)
You’re right, Lynn, that would be a good idea! 🙂
I would love the 20 Take Away for another game too! This one is great, though, thank you so much!
On another note, I just started Reading Van de Walle’s book for K-3 – it is awesome! So glad you mentioned him on your blog, or I may not have ever found out about this valuable resource!
Van de Walle is a book you will wear out from use, Heather! 🙂

let me try that one more time….What if you had a double ten frame with all grey circles….then have students turn over two cards and added them together…then crossed that sum out to take away….This would be a 20 take away…I have seen this version with the “bump it” activities…If you do this let me know!
Great activity! Thanks for sharing this, I love your FUN ideas! 🙂
My pleasure, Lorena!
