Double Dice in Middle School

I purchased Double Dice on a whim thinking they looked cool....
Turned out they were a great addition to making learning
in my resource room HANDS-ON and fun!

I purchased these sets:




In the last few years, I have used the double dice again and again.  
I'm actually surprised I haven't blogged about them sooner.
They were well worth the investment. 

I thought I would use them in games, but turns out that they were better suited for my classroom
for practice problems..... They turned monotonous practice into something fun!

Certain topics and basic skills (fractions, exponents, integers, formulas...) require review and repetition in the resource room and "another worksheet" just won't cut it.  The students need hands-on kinesthetic learning to motivate them and keep them engaged.

I made a few Double Dice practice sheets for my classroom and am sharing them on TpT...
 check them out below!




(I will be posting my fractions & geometry practice sheets soon! )
