This game will allow students to become fluent in addition facts to 5 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 5 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!
