It doesn't matter whether you print two separate pages or print them onto one piece of card stock, front and back.

  4. Place half of a Velcro dot within the square of the game board (apply directly to the document sleeve) and the other half to the back of the game cards.
  5. To play, place all of the game cards into a large basket. Invite the student to pick a piece then match it to the proper number on the game board. Continue until all the game pieces have been matched.
