Exploring Addition with Dice

The "Add and Roll" worksheet offers an exciting opportunity for students to practice addition in a dynamic and stimulating way. By incorporating dice rolling into the learning process, students not only reinforce their addition skills but also develop number recognition and counting abilities.


How to Use the Worksheet

  1. Dice Rolling Activity: Begin by providing each student with two dice. These dice can be standard six-sided

dice for beginners or larger dice for more advanced learners. Students roll the dice and observe the numbers that appear.
