Eight different Yatta games in one!
Yatta is a highly engaging game that allows students to work on skill fluency while having fun. In this version, you can choose to have students work on addition, subtraction, doubles, doubles + 1, and 3 Numbers with Doubles. There will be quite a few mats and corresponding cards for you to use. This is so you can successfully differentiate this activity based on your students’ levels of readiness.
•An ‘I can . . . ‘ card for each activity type
•1 Mat and card set for:
•Addition thru 5
•Addition thru 10
•Subtraction from 5
•Subtraction from 10
•Doubles Plus 1
•3 Number Addition with Doubles thru 10
•3 Number Addition with Doubles thru 20
Cards and mats have matching icons for easy organization when differentiating. Choose a mat based on the readiness of your students. Set the mat in the middle of your playing space. Take the thematic playing cards and stack them face down in a centrally visible location. You can either have students take turns turning over the playing cards or have a card turner. When the card is turned over, students quickly complete the equation and then locate that number on the playing mat. (Sometimes there will be more than one number represented on the mat.) The first person to point to the correct number and say “Yatta” (pronounced yacht-ta), gets to keep the card. When all the cards have been played, students count up all their cards to see who has the most. That person gets to be the card turner next.
