I cleaned out my garage this summer and come acrossed a box filled with dice. I want to give them to the parents at Back to School Night with a list of academic games they can play with their child using the dice. I searched the internet and found a few but I know my creative PT friends have so many more. I would love the hear your ideas!!! <3
BTW I teach 2nd grade but would love games for my lower kiddos and challanging ones for my high ones too!

Roll the dice and add the numbers. Then partner plays. Repeat and add the totals. Continue until one person reaches 100, this person is the winner.

Race to 0

Start with 100. Roll the dice add the numbers and subtract it from 100. Next person takes a turn and does the same (starting from 100.) First person to reach 0 wins.

Parts of Speech Review:

Decide what part of speech you're going to use. Roll the dice and add them. The number you get is the number of nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, interjections, prepositions, etc. that you have to name.

(If I rolled a total of 6 and we were naming nouns, I'd have to name 6 nouns.)

I have my students roll two dice (or one dice rolled two times,if necessary), then record and add their two numbers. Then they write the turn-around fact and the related subtraction facts. We use dry-erase boards and it is amazing how many fact families each child can generate! Pencil and paper practice is great for this activity, too.

This is fun with multiplication fact families, also!

When kids are reading at home with their parents, they can each roll the die and whomever rolls the highest reads first...or page on left vs page on the right.

Dice Place Value

Roll as many dice as you need to practice the place value you want them to practice...ie 3 for hundreds place and so on....then they try to make the largest number and smallest number with the dice. You can also suggest that they record them on a recording sheet.

My firsties love 5 in a row. (See the attachment.) I have 6, 8 and 10 sided dice so their is a board for each. For your bright kids you could make a board for rolling and adding 3 numbers...Also if you go on TPT a lot of people offer dice game boards.

What a great find! Here is an idea. While I use other math games, I plan to use these someone as Christmas gifts for my class this year. I am going to copy them, give them a pair of dice, and make it into a cute package. I think I found these on PT, but maybe somewhere else. Hope you find it helpful.

Thank you so much everyone. I am going to work on putting these all together over the weekend so I can give out a pair of dice and a sheet of games at Back to School Night Tuesday. Once I get the sheet together I will post it on here to share with you all!!!
