Who doesn't love cupcakes!? This open ended game is perfect for reinforcement during drill/practice of skills like sight word drill, math facts drill, articulation drill, fluency drill, answering questions and other tasks that children need motivation to complete.
Use with 2 to 6 players. Allow each student to choose a cake stand and a “Come to my party” card which tells the student which cupcakes they must bring to the St. Patrick’s Day party!
Included in this download:
- Three different styles of cake stands. Print as many as these as needed to accommodate your largest group (up to 6). Let students choose which cake stand they will use or assign them one with the “you get what you get and you don’t pitch a fit” method.
- 30 St. Patty’s cupcake cards that students will find and put on their cake stand for the “party.”
- 5 St. Patty’s wild cards that shake up the game as well as the cards that tell which 5 cupcakes each player has to find and stack on their cake stand in order to win the game.
- a St. Patty’s themed words and phrases sorted by phoneme to use for articulation drill, vocabulary discussion or reading (if desired).
To Play: Place all 30 cupcake cards and the 5 wild cards facedown on a table or the floor. Students should be allowed to take turns picking a card after performing X numbers of skill drills. If students turn over a cupcake they need, they get to keep it and put put it on their cake stand. If they turn over a card with a cupcake they do not need, they must put the card back. The first player who gathers all 5 of the cupcakes for the party wins the game! * If the game doesn’t progress to that point in the allotted time, the child who has collected the MOST cupcakes wins the game!
Print, cut and play! Laminate for durability. Bon Appetit and Happy St. Patrick's Day!
