This game will allow students to become fluent in addition facts to 10 by collecting gold. But don't let the sneaky leprechaun catch you!
Students pick cards and hold on to them until they can make a combination of 10 and lay that match down. If they pull the leprechaun card, they must put the cards in their hand back in the pile--not their matches. This encourages kids to make matches and not hold on to their cards. Have fun playing and learning!
Please make sure you are getting the correct game--I have one with combinations to 5 also.
