This fun St. Patrick’s Day pot of gold printable counting game helps children with number recognition, counting, writing numbers, and so much more.
Roll and Count math dice games are one of my favorites because there is an element of surprise. This is not only exciting, but also makes it so kids can’t pick the ‘easy’ ones that they may already know. This St. Patrick’s Day Math game for number recognition is also continually interesting for kids so it keeps an activity out for them but requires less prep on our part!
Pot of Gold Printable Math Game
We usually do this activity in a few different ways. The first is with our printable dices inserts, put into the differentiated instruction cubes. This makes it easy to switch between the numbers or counter style.
We have also used our favorite giant foam dice with this pot of gold printable. These are quieter than others we have used, which makes it nice when each kid is working on individual activities. This is helpful for when you have two children on different counting levels.
There are also options for the printable sheet itself. We love using dry erase pockets. They are super convenient for switching the printables. They also work great for erasing and the dry erase markers don’t stick. The second alternative is to laminate the printables.
We have a lot of fun with these counting games. There are a variety of ways that this can be used, including using play dough, mini erasers, gems, or pretty vase fillers.
Roll and Count math games are always fun because there is an element of surprise. There’s a different number with each roll. This keeps children’s interest up and is less prep for us.
We also love using our giant foam dice for math activities! They are so much fun to roll AND they are quieter than normal dice, so they don’t disturb the other kids. For kids who are just starting to learn numbers, they can use the traditional 1-6 die. For kids who need more of a challenge counting, use the 1-12 or 1-20 dice.
You can also use our favorite double dice to create a fun addition activity for kindergarteners (or extend it to older students by using double dice for multiplication).
