Doubles Cover-Up

1st& 2nd Grade Doubles Cover Up Game - a great way to learn your doubles!

You will need:
*counters in two different colours (or two different coin denominations)
*a partner to play with
*a board with the numbers 2,4,6,8,10,12,14,16,18,20 on it.
*a ten sided die

First, you and your partner need to figure out who is having the first turn. A good way to do this is to play "rock, paper, scissors" or to see who rolls the biggest number on the die.
The person who is having the first turn rolls the die. Then they have to double the number they roll (0 stands for the number 10) and put a counter on the square of their answer to cover up the number. Then other person has a turn, they do the same thing. If you get the same number as your opponent, you can knock their counter off and put yours on.

You keep playing until all the number squares are covered. The person with the most counters on the board is the winner!

It's a really good way to practice your doubles. And it's also double as much fun as learning any other way. If it sounds good to you, you should play yourself.
