My students absolutely love seasonal themed activities and I love watching them build skills while having fun! This free Roll and Graph St. Patrick’s Day math activity is the perfect opportunity for students to practice graphing skills in a fun way. This adorable leprechaun game will bring some roll and graph excitement to your classroom this month!
Roll and Graph St. Patrick’s Day Math Activity
This St. Patrick’s Day math activity is perfect for both Pre-K and Kindergarten! As a bonus, while the students practice their graphing skills they are also strengthening fine motor muscles through coloring!
Use this graphing activity for both whole group instruction and small groups or add it to your math centers! I also like to use it for partner work. When children work in pairs they can turn this activity into a race to see which St. Patrick’s Day themed picture wins first!
Let’s get started with our supplies!
- St. Patrick’s Day Roll and Graph recording page and printable die (at the end of the post)
- St. Patrick’s Day Pocket Die printable picture cards (at the end of the post)
- Pocket Dice
How to Assemble the Printable Die
One of the best things about this roll and graph is… options!
There are two options for using dice with this activity. You can use the included St. Patrick’s Day printable die and assemble it on your own OR you can use the pocket die printable cards to place in a pocket die.
Assembly for the St. Patrick’s Day roll and graph printable die is simple! I would suggest laminating it first. This makes it easier to assemble and also makes the die more durable.
Simply cut out the die along the thick black line. Then you’ll fold inward, along the dotted lines. Keep folding up the die and tucking in the edges until it’s in a cube shape. Lastly, add a couple pieces of tape to secure the die.
If you’d rather not fuss with assembling the printable die, then use pocket dice!
Simply print the pocket die picture cards, cut them out, and slide them into the sides of the pocket dice. So simple!
How to Use the Roll and Graph Recording Sheet
If using this St. Patrick’s Day math activity in your math centers, be sure that your students have a solid foundation of graphing skills. If it’s been a while then a quick reminder of how to graph will help!
You might also want to place a basket in the math center with a variety of coloring tools in it to make graphing even more fun!
Extra Fun Tip: Give students colorful stickers for graphing instead of coloring in the squares on the recording sheet. This is great practice for fine motor skills!
Time to Graph!
This graphing activity is so easy to play and so much fun! Students simply roll the die and then, on the recording sheet, color in one square above the picture that matches the one they rolled.
The activity continues with the student rolling the die and coloring in the squares above the picture rolled on the die until they reach the top of the graph in one of the columns!
Turn this St. Patrick’s Day math activity into a race! In pairs, each child has his/her own St. Patrick’s Day roll and graph recording sheet and they share a die.
Player #1 rolls the die and colors in the square on their own graphing recording sheet.
Player #2 then rolls and records the picture rolled on their own recording sheet. The game continues until one of the players has reached the top of their graph first!
