Lucky Leprechaun Game with Keyboard Cards

Here is the same Lucky Leprechaun Game with Keyboard Cards.  I am having a lot of fun playing this game.  The kids enjoy seeing who has the Leprechaun at the end.

1. The dealer shuffles the cards and deals out all the cards to the players. It doesn’t matter if they don’t come out evenly.
2. Each player picks up his cards and holds them so that other players cannot see them. Players may want to organize their cards so that like notes are together.
3. Next, players take out of their hands any pairs they have. For example, if a player has two A's, the player takes that pair out. All the pairs from all the players’ hands go into a pile, face down, in the center of the table. However, if a player has, for example, three C's, he can only put down the pair.  Depending on the level, pairs do not have to be the exact same note.  For instance you can have a Middle C and a Bass C be a pair.
4. The player to the left of the dealer (Joel) spreads out his hand, face down, on the table. The player to his left (Amy) picks up one of those cards. If she can make a pair by using that card, she removes the pair and puts it in the pile at the center of the table. Otherwise, Amy just keeps that card.
5. Now, Amy spreads her cards on the table, face down, so that the player to her left can pick up one card out of her hand.
6.  Play continues in this way. Eventually, one player will be left with card "The Lucky Leprechaun" and that players wins.  You can also see who has the most pairs and they can be the winner as well.

Can also be played with Shamrock Staff Cards

Behavior Management Motivators

   1.  Tried and true:  “I like how Henry is sitting quietly”    2.  Scoreboard:  Tallies for different groups, boys and girls, teacher vs. student, table groups.  I did this all last year and it was not even for a prize.  Kids love competition!    3.  Token economy:  Give the class a cotton ball or marble in a jar for when they are following the rules or getting their work done.    4.  Special Friend:  Have a special animal the student gets to sit with if they do an awesome job.  The special friend will only sit with a quiet friend.    5.  Special Something:  Special sticker, stamp or candy (it works) for those who are following directions.    6.  Selfies:  Take a video or picture (or pretend to).  Tell them you might send this to their parents so they need to be on their best behavior!    7.  Super Spot:  Draw a smiley face or use scented lip balm to make a spot.    8.  Mystery Student:  Pick a random student to watch for good behavior.  Pi
