So, I like to do a LOT of dice rolling activities...
You can find one in all of my Common Core Literacy Menu packs....
all of my Common Core Math Menu packs....
MOST of my grammar and phonics packs....
(I'll actually be updating the "oldest" packs I have to incorporate all of the activities found in my newer grammar and phonics packs)
Even a long time ago, I shared a sight word freebie where I used dice!
Click the picture to grab the freebie!
and I even have thematic rolling sheets that I shared once upon a time... lol

( I know there's only 5 columns...but I only had 5 words, so I just told them to roll again if they got a 6...or to use that one to help a word get ahead - ha!)
SO... as you can see, I'm a big fan of dice/graphing activities...ha!
Now...the big question... what kind of dice do I use??
I used to use jut regular ole dice...I have TONS of them... I really don't even know where they all came from, but I still have them...tucked away into my drawers.
But the noise was driving me crazy! And I didn't feel like making those "quiet" containers for all 20 of my kids plus some for my centers...so I just broke down and bought a $6 pack of 36 foam dice!
And for my centers I like to have the kids use the BIG foam dice..it makes the centers feel even that more special. Anything to make them want to do the center even more...right!?
I also really like to use the photo cubes... I like to use them if I want to differentiate the words (for spelling or sight word rolling activities) for my kids and tell each kid (or group) what color die to use...
It works great!
When I bought them about 4 years ago, I could only find the baby photo blocks...
but now Carson Dellosa has a version too...but they're the same thing - ha!
So... do you use dice??? Are you like me and have such a wide variety?! haha
