Thank you for those you sent in cards! Subtraction Salute is a GREAT game for facts! I put the directions below in case you want to try to play at home!
3. Subtraction Salute
What they’ll practice: Addition, subtraction
What they’ll need: One deck of cards for every three students (face cards are worth 11)
How to play: Two players are the “soldiers” and one player is the “general.” Deal half a deck to each soldier. To begin the game, both soldiers salute the general by holding one of their cards up to their forehead (they can’t see the card they’re holding but the other two players can).
The general (the only one who can see both cards) adds the two numbers together and says the sum aloud. Each soldier then takes that sum, subtracts the number her opponent is holding, and calls out the value of the card she can’t see. Whoever calls out the correct number first gets to keep both cards. Play ends when time runs out or someone wins all the cards.
