With lucky shamrocks and some lucky owls, we have loads of fun here trying to collect the most lucky beans from the pot! This game increases reading fluency and helps students to read with expression. They love the silly sentences and go crazy when they get a rainbow but no lucky beans! At the same time, as they take turns collecting and losing beans, they are learning to do more mental addition and subtraction. Use of real bean counters makes it possible for everyone to play. A variation of the game changes it up into more practice using tens and ones as the players "trade up" their beans as they play. Add this game to your March plans now!
