Who loves dice in the classroom? Raise your hand if you have tons of dice floating around the classroom. I love dice because using them for dice games is EASY and can make differentiating for students easy! Today I’m sharing some fun and easy dice games for the classroom!
These large foam dice are from Oriental Trading. The dice are foam so they’re quiet and the dots are large so it’s easier for students to count!

How about using dice as a stamp? True story! Instead of rolling the dice, students stamp them on an ink pad and stamp the dice onto the paper. The dots are exposed and they count the dots to add!
Here’s another way to practice addition with dice:
Students roll the dice. They make the dots and write the equation and solve.
How about working with dice and numbers to 20? Simple. Make your own number dice! Simply use wooden cubes and dot stickers to make number cubes.

Now, here’s a Mr. Greg pet peeve. DICE noise! Seriously, ya’ll. 20 kids with dice rolling everywhere can be…well…loud. So here’s our solution:
These are simply baskets with felt hot glued to the bottom. This keeps the noise down and keeps the dice contained. That means no more dice flying around the room! I have 1 dice basket per student!
