Many of you might have noticed that I love doing things with dice. I posted several months ago about some really nifty dice that my students absolutely love, so the other day I went back to the teacher store to buy some more. Not only did they have the one that my students love, but they even had some new ones! Check out some of my new purchases . . .
How fun are these!!! I actually am writing up some of the games I use with my students, because I think I'm going to add those as part of my independent math time. I want the students to have an easy to read set of directions instead of me having to explain each day!
One thing I found out is that I will be needing fraction dice for our new math resource, so I priced those at the store as well. They were super expensive, so I thought I could make my own.
(Besides...I had that moment where I realized that I could use my new label maker!)
Check it out!
I found in the "symbols" menu option common fractions and also the ability to make any fraction using raised and lowered numbers. Here is my first attempt! I need to look deeper to see exactly what the fraction dice need to have on them and then I'll make the rest. I'm sure there are all sorts of other "dice" I may be making!
Just thought I'd share! Tomorrow I am off to school to take a load of my goodies up and out of my house...and to take a few "before" photos! Hope everyone is having a good weekend...
