Early Finishers

Shamrock Shenanigans math game boards are perfect for early finishers or St. Patrick’s Day activities.

What is included:

    Pre-K - Grade 1 Students roll a dice, write a number, collect GOLD and place their pieces on the game board. Simple directions make it easy for students to play the game and practice number recognition, writing numbers and recording their results. Volunteers (students or adults) can help kids read directions.


    K - Grade 4 Using 2 markers students land on 2 numbers. A symbol spinner or die will determine how they solve a problem using those numbers. The symbols used (+, -, x, ÷, <, >) will be determined by skill level or grade level.


    1 - Grade 4 Students roll a die and move that number of spaces. The number in the circle they land on is recorded on the record sheet. At the end of the game, students add the numbers listed and record the total. This game board includes 1,2 and 3 digit numbers. Use the blank game board to create a game with numbers that fit your grade level or skill levels of students in your classroom (single digits, double digits, negative numbers, etc.).


  • INVENT A GAME (Game Board)
    A blank game board is ready for kids to add illustrations, numbers, words or symbols. The record sheet can be used or they can create their own method of record-keeping


  • INVENTOR’S PAGE (Worksheet)
    This page is set up with prompts that help students determine the materials needed in their game, the object of the game, game name, directions and more.


    The tally page helps students keep track of turns, scores and other data related to the game they are playing.
