Giving dice a new lease on life....

My local Dollar Tree had a small bin full of jumbo foam dice last weekend. I couldn't resist buying 5 packs of them. One of the sets will be for games. The others....well.......
Sharpies are my new best friends.
Eventually, I learned that it's easier to write on them diagonally.
Dice for pronouns, vocabulary, wh-questions, positions, and parts of speech. My students love to play games that contain dice so why not turn the dice into the therapy tool? 

Now, if only I can think of ideas for the last three dice.

P.S. The vocabulary one has the following: define it, give me another word that means the same, draw a picture, act it out, give me a word that means the opposite, and in your own words...


  1. I too love dollar deal finds! Great idea for the dice!

  2. Love this idea! I hunted these down and found them at my local Dollar Tree too. I'm going to make ones to use with listening comprehension activities and passages: a wh- question one, and another one with main idea, setting, characters, 1 detail, 2 details, make a prediction. I will definitely be borrowing your vocabulary dice idea! Thank you for sharing!

    1. You're welcome and your idea about story dice is wonderful too!
