ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Learning-solutions, Education Consultant

I am a semi-retired primary teacher with a degree and experience in Learning Support.  During my 30 odd years teaching I was a classroom teacher, principal, guidance officer and learning support teacher.  I have had straight grades and multi-age classes in towns and communities all over Queensland.  My passion is differentiation and supporting all learners.

     I am offering it as a freebie so you can dowload and play to see if it suits you and your learners.  I'd be surprised if you don't love it and come back for the complete set.  They will provide the consolidation that most learners need to understand the abstract concept of equivalence and they will be more economical than worksheets in the long run.  There are 53 uniform cards in each set and you can mix and match according to the needs of your learners.

    The directions for DONKEY are simple. Just deal out all the cards. Players (up to 6) put down their pairs at the beginning of their turn and say what is on the card pairs. Then they offer their hand, face down and fanned out, so the next player can pick one of their cards before they have their turn. They cannot see the card they choose. The second player now puts down any pairs they have, saying the name of the fraction as they do. Play continues this way until the DONKEY is the only card left. That player is the LOSER. 


    I use games like DONKEY in intervention every day. When I can I send the game home for family fun time there's no better homework. Including the game in a Maths Centre has the same learning value (through repetition).

    The Conversion Charts (also offered as freebies) help to scaffold the learning and make it inclusive. With the chart your intervention kids can play with anyone and you are differentiating. Meanwhile everyone is consolidating the concept of equivalence
