This is a game that learners can play individually to practise addition to 11. Each learner will need a deck of playing cards. You start by shuffling the cards. Then you lay 9 cards out in a 3X3 matrix.


You then need to look for combinations that add up to 11. These are 1+10, 2+9, 3+8, 4+7 and 5+6. If you have a combination that adds up to 11 you cover the two cards with two more cards. The picture cards (King, Queen, Jack) are able to be covered if you have one of each pictures. The aim of the game is to place all of the cards out. If you run out of combinations, you restart the game after shuffling the cards again.
