Catch Your Little Leprechauns Practicing Addition! Plus a Freebie!

I put together this easy and fun math center.  The students even play this during free time!

I found these goodies at The Dollar Tree!  Not sure if your store will still have them available.  I did buy mine early in the season.  I added some links at the bottom at Amazon for the supplies if you can't find them.

Cute little Leprechaun Pots with Handles!

I used a Sharpie Silver pen to write numbers 1 through 10 on the pots.
These have a nice smooth surface to write on. I noticed many on Amazon have a bumpy surface.  Not sure how well it will work to write on those.  Maybe add a sticker instead.

Then using green round stickers I wrote the addition problems for the sums 1 through 10 and attached them to the pretend gold coins. 

Students add the coin to the correct pot!
It's a quick and easy center to make.
It goes pretty fast for the kids to complete.  Would make a great morning activity and they love doing it more than once.

We have the students make a leprechaun trap at home as a family project.  They set them up the night before and lay out gold and pennies to entice the Leprechaun into their trap!

When the leprechaun steps onto the top it tips in!  So clever!

He used the Lucky Charms box!  They have the houses on them again this year.

This one lit up with lights to lure the leprechaun in!

They were all unique and the kids absolutely loved the project!

When the kiddos show up the next day they can't wait to see if they caught the little guy!
I leave little green footprints around the room with a tiny foot punch (link below), chocolate coins or any gold wrapped candy, and a green necklace!

Keep scrolling for a wonderful differentiated Freebie!
