Savannah fifth grade teacher Darbie Valenti shares how a deck of cards can help you easily review math facts.

Have your students played Salute? Salute can be played in teams of 3 or 4. The General says, “Salute!” and two soldiers hold up a card to their forehead without looking. The General multiples (or younger generals can add) the two numbers and says the product out loud. The soldiers them look at each other and try to determine what factor they have. This can be easily played with a deck of cards and is a great time filler when you just need a short 3-5 minute activity.
