BRIEF OUTLINE: Students practice saying numbers by simply throwing dice.

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

  • 2-6 dice: Big soft dice from 100-yen shop are best

    DETAILED EXPLANATION:

    • Split the class into teams of 4-6 students.
    • Have one student from each team come to the front.  You/JTE throw the dice and the first student to raise their hand and give the correct answer, receives a point for their team.

     

    VARIATIONS:

    • I often start with just 2 dice and gradually add to them.
    • To practice a certain target numbers, start with a base number and throw the dice.  The students must add/subtract from the base number.
    • To practice really high numbers, have the students multiple each die to each other.  For example, if a 3, 5 and 6 were thrown, the answer would be 90.

     

    TEACHING SUGGESTIONS:

    • Throwing the dice on the floor can make it hard for all to see so I often actually have the dice together in my hands for them all to see and turn them over.
