Rolling! Rolling! Rolling! - Freebie

Putting dice or number cubes in a Math station seems to just knock the kids' excitement level up a notch. They think it's a game instead of work or practice!
I gave them four dice. They rolled them and made two two-digit numbers.  Next, they had to add the two numbers together. If they had to regroup to add, the problem had to be circled.

  2. Love it!!! Station for Tuesday. I think I will also use this same idea for subtraction because my kids need the practice with trading big time. Thank you for your great ideas and resources.

  3. Hi Mary:
    I think I am going to throw in some decimals and use it for sixth graders.
    Thanks for sharing!

  4. I like it! May add a couple extra dice for differentiation for my "Challenge Kids"... they always want to do it just a step up. Or we could have them multiple the two 2-digit numbers. Thanks for the idea :-)
