Students rolled dice and practice counting the dice dots or remembering the quantity of dice shown without counting, subsidizing. If students are able to easily subsidize quantities, then counting
large amounts of items will be made easier by viewing items in small
groups such as 5’s rather than 1’s.
The dollar store has “fuzzy dice” attached to a string. I cut off the string and use them in groups and/or partners.The dice roll quietly because they are plastic.
This is a great activity to observe the students that can count one to one, know the dice number shapes, and/or can work in a partner to take turns. I love activities that show many things at once!
