Tired of laminating, cutting, and organizing holiday math stations? Try these easy no-prep St. Patrick’s Day math worksheets that will keep your 3rd graders engaged while practicing basic multiplication and division facts. Not only are these print-and-go activities easy to use, but they’re also free!
Color by number Multiplication
3rd graders love to color! This color by number worksheet is a great way for students to practice multiplication facts.
TIP – Have students write their answers next to each problem. Then have them color around their answers to make grading easy. This ensures that students are thinking and not just coloring their pages to look like everyone else’s.
St. Patrick’s Day-themed multiplication fact drills provide students with mixed fact practice. For each circle students not only need to find products, but they will also need to find missing factors. This worksheet is a great prep for division fluency.
Lucky Multiples of 7
Get lucky with four-leaf clovers! Have students search for multiples of 7 with this no-prep St. Patrick’s Day math activity.
Being able to skip count multiples helps students with multiplication, division, creating equivalent fractions, and simplifying fractions. Activities like this one help students build math skills for success in future grades.
Multiplication and Division Number Searches
Practicing one factor or divisor at a time is a wonderful way to scaffold students until they become fluent with basic facts. That’s why I love using these multiplication and division number searches.
First, students solve the equations at the bottom. Then, they find and circle the equations. While students are searching for the equation they are holding the basic fact in their minds. Linking 7, 8, and 56 together while looking for 8 x 7 = 56 helps students build fact fluency.
Divide by 7 Practice with a Spin
An easy way to support students learning one divisor at a time is to use spin & divide practice.
Students use a paper clip to spin for the dividend. After writing the dividend in the correct place, they solve the equation.
TIP – You may want to limit the number of times students can include each dividend on their papers. I’ve had students claim the spinner landed on the same number over and over. No one’s that lucky! 😁 It’s a little suspicious when their entire paper consists of only easy facts.
