Wacky War Math Center & A Giveaway

Happy Thursday!  Only one more day until the weekend and I am sure you all, like me, are super excited!  Today I am linking up with Laura at Corkboard Connections: Super Math Centers Linky Party.  This game is something I shared over at Klinger Cafe as a guest blogger and I wanted the chance to share it on my own blog too.  Now is the perfect opportunity. 

The game is called Wacky War.  It is played exactly like the card game war, but with an added twist.  Instead of having the person with the higher number keep the cards, the person who can give the sum or product first, depending on grade level, gets to keep the cards!  There are two versions, one for addition and one for addition or multiplication.  The first set I created, for addition only, has my own version of a tens frame for those kindergarten and first grade friends who may need a visual to help them add the two numbers together.  This set goes to ten.  The second set can be used for addition or multiplication because they have a star in the middle of the card that has nothing to do with the number on the actual card.  They just add a little fancy.  This set goes to twelve.

Multiplication Cards

Hopefully you can use one of these versions of Wacky War! 

Now, onto the giveaway!  I am very excited because I recently hit 100 followers!  To celebrate, I am giving away a $20 gift card.  The winner will have their choice of a gift certificate from either
