Math Game: Counting by 2s

I love this FREE game from Sara Rhodes on TPT!  So many games require so much set up and work…but this one required no velcro and just a little cutting!  My mid-level math group has been working on some counting skills such as counting on, counting by 2s, 5s, 10s, etc.   My kids totally got counting by 5s and 10s, but they were really struggling with the concept of counting by 2s. We also had been working on a dinosaur unit in science, so this game was a perfect fit.

Each time you play the game, you pick a new "magic number."  Then you deal out all the cards.  The kids take turns seeing if they can add a card to count on by 2s either before or after the cards that are already laid down.  We have played this game 3 times now, and my kids are starting to get it!
