1 From Zero to Nine From Zero to Nine: Extend this lesson by having your student practice adding 0 to 9 using a deck of cards. Remove the face cards. Tell your student that a joker is zero. Shuffle the cards. Flip-up 2 cards and have your student add the numbers together. If you flip up two cards that equal more than 9, skip them and flip again.
