You can use Dice for a lot of learning concepts. Here are some ideas!
Counting On using 2 dice.
Have your students count on, using their dice. Prompt them to start counting at the smaller number and continue counting until they reach the higher number. This helps to reinforce the difference between the numbers.
Roll a double dice cube, then add, subtract, or multiply the numbers depending on what you’re practicing in your classroom. For more advanced subtraction practice, have students subtract the inside die from the outside die, no matter which number is greater. This will give them work with negative numbers.
Math Fluency Game to 20
Players roll two dice cubes. They then turn each into a two-digit number and add or subtract, with the goal of a sum or difference as close to 20 as possible. Their score for the round is the difference between 20 and their number, with the goal being the lowest score possible.
Early Addition Practice
Make a chart with numbers 1-12. Addition Bump can be played alone or with a partner. Roll a cube and add the two numbers, then cover that number with a marker on the sheet. If the other player already has a marker on that number, you can bump them off!
Have your child predict the results for a total of 24 rolls and then test their predictions.
Reading Fluency Practice
Make a chart with each side of the dice (1-6) label each side with a way to read a story/sentences. 1 could be an excited voice, 2 for a scary voice, 3 with a worried voice and so on. They roll the dice to determine how they will read the story. This supports both fluency and expression while reading out loud.
(LakeShore Learning Ideas)
Demonstrate that if you take a domino, you can make it into an
Have them count the dots on each side, and write an addition sentence.
You can also use dominoes to
practice equivalent fractions
. Turn a domino with 1 dot and 2 dots vertically, so that the single dot is above the pair of dots. Explain that this represents the fraction ½. See how they can find a domino with an equivalent fraction. 2/4 or 3/6...repeat with other examples.
