Make 6 Numbers

Take a deck of cards and remove all the royal cards, leaving only the numbers one through nine in each suit. Have your child turn over three cards. Then, have her rearrange these cards to try and make six different numbers. For instance, if she turned over the cards 3, 9, and 5, she could make the number 395, 593, 953, 359, 935. 953, etc. She can record the numbers in a math journal and then arrange them in order from least to greatest. This is a great way to practice understanding place value.
