My students loved activities that included a die or dice. I usually used the standard dot ones. When an activity required letters, math symbols, or a different set of numbers I grabbed my roll of masking tape and made the adjustments. There were occasions when I cut out, labeled, folded, and taped together a die pattern. Unfortunately, these die didn’t hold up all that well. That’s why when I saw these dice on Pinterest I sat up and took notice. Check them out! The wipe-off surfaces make them easy to program. The sides and corners are soft foam which means the dice won’t make a racket when they’re rolled. And of course I love the colors. Now I haven’t used these dice, however it looks to me as if they are designed to protect the wipe-off programming from sweaty hands.
If you haven’t used these dice, would you?
I’m thinking about purchasing a set for an upcoming First Friday Giveaway.
Let me know your interest!

They appear to be very usable. My teachers would use them I think.
I would! Great idea.
I’d like to try them. I‘d definitely like to see just how well the marker used on them holds up.
These would be AWESOME …. so many uses, reading, writing, math, science …. the possibilities are endless!!!
Wow, I’d definitely like a pair of these dice. I too have made paper dive and masking tape to make dice. However these are super.
I would definitely use them!
These are great! I usually make paper cubes and change out the fronts with whatever I am working on, but as you can imagine its not very sturdy and they get smooshed a lot. I would love to have a set.
yes they look fun to use for almost anything! I would also love a set for my girl scout troop!
Oh wow so cool and so many ways you could use them
These are amazing! How easy to differentiate activities for my special needs classroom without making 4 sets of materials!
I would love to try them! Like you I am always making dice, these would be so much easier
Love them! Where did you find them? I don’t see a link!
Darlene, I ran across the dice on Pinterest and then located them on a couple of websites (Walmart and School Specialty). Lynn (below) said she saw something similar at the Dollar Tree. That would be a savings of about $20. I’ll check this out and see if the products are comparable.
Haven’t used them yet, but found them at the Dollar Tree recently
These look amazing! There are many options for using these.
I have one of these. I use it all the time for sight words in my Kindergarten classes. Love them!
How clever!!!! Yes, please!!!
I can think of lots of ways to use them – writing prompts, parts of speech, parts of a story, what to do when you’re done!!
Love these! Can use for children to pick the song of the day, tell me something about yourself… favorite color, animal, etc. The options are endless for these dice!
I have seen these for sale at Dollar Tree
I have some I got from the dollar tree. I put the harder spelling words on them. The students roll them and write the words they land on.
Love It! I have also seen dice where you can slide new sides in so you can have number dice with butterfly pictures or all the nimbers (or letters) can be different. My only concern with these is would the things that are written would rub off with little hands.
These are a game changer! Literally!
What a great idea! Many uses for these!!
I could see these dice being used in a variety of ways! I would definitely utilize them in my work with kiddos.
Absolutely useful even for my tiny tots…with numbers, or animals, or shapes! Love it!
Would definitely use instead of my homemade paper ones
I think they would be great for weekly vocabulary words. Roll, and whatever word they get, they have to say the meaning. They could get one point for each correct answer.
Awesome! They would be great for Math Recovery as well as multiple word games. If you don’t do this, could you tell us where you got them?
Thank You so Much

YES!!! Students LOVE working with dice!
I have some. They work great. The only negative is that sometimes the words and numbers rub off too easily.
