Hey teaching friends! I came across these awesome Dice in Dice from Learning Resources and just knew you all would love them! There is so much you can do with them in your classroom!
How about a few ideas from fellow colleagues? On my Instagram account:
@theuniqueclassroom said “Addition or multiplication games!”
Several good ideas from @larnww “I used them for addition all the time… Like: create your own addition story using what you rolled. And greater than/less than discussions.”
@asunnydayinfirstgrade also suggested “I use them for addition and subtraction!! :)”
@savbruski “My math consultant was just showing me dice in dice today! I had never heard of them before. We are going to try to do a multiplication dice game.”
and @robinf639 mentioned “My favorite! Addition practice!”
All awesome ideas! I love collaborating and chatting with other educators on Instagram!
Well – I decided to incorporate some of that addition and multiplication and toss together a fun freebie for you today called Telling Time Rollers! This freebie includes a color AND a grayscale version for those who aren’t able to get to a color printer. Another idea to save paper: toss it in a sheet protector and have the students use dry erase markers.
These little dice from Learning Resources are awesome and so much fun! They even include some fun learning ideas, such as having students create some addition numbers sentences using the 2 dice, representing quantities in any way they see applicable (tallies, circles, arrays, etc), and writing more or less sentences with the results they toss.
The possibilities are endless using these manipulatives. All math classrooms should have some dice available for games – the students love them and there are just so many ways to be used!
Learning Resources is so generous, they will also be donating an extra set of these sweet dice to one lucky reader here at Organized Classroom! OH YEAH! Make sure to get entered below! Good luck to all who enter from Learning Resources and Organized Classroom!
