Crazy 8s: It's in the Cards

This week, we begin a new Bedtime Math session at the New Hampton Community School's after school program, Project Promise. This session's Crazy 8s Club will be with younger students, in kindergarten, first, and second grade.

We began this week by learning to play Crazy 8s, the card game! We learned about the names of suits and the values of face cards as we played the game. Then we played 13 Pyramid, a tricky game where you have to add up available cards to get to thirteen. We were having so much fun, we did not have time for the Solitaire game, but each member of the Crazy 8s Club took home a sheet with directions for al the card games and a brand new deck of Bedtime Math playing cards, so they could play at home!
