Today for ‘MATH MONDAY MADNESS’ I want to share a tip about my favourite math games, tips and ideas.
As we all know, dice games can be loud. I have seen many teachers express interest in using small containers for dice so they don’t go flying around. While I do think that is a good solution for some teachers, it is not a good a solution for teachers like me who hate the shake-shake-shaking of dice!
Allow me to introduce the Math Plate!
BONUS TIP: I also have told my students that if their dice rolls off of the plate, that means that they miss a turn. Maybe that makes me a big meanie, but it keeps students on task and keeps them playing games for longer without using dice as toys.
I hope you find this useful and helpful!
