Primary Dicey Numbers!

I had fun tutoring elementary students this summer.  We used tiles, cards, pattern blocks, dice, and poker chips to build number sense.


One of the activities we did was to roll 3, 4, or 5 dice to create the largest possible number, then the smallest possible number.  We added them, subtracted them, graphed them on a number line, and talked about the patterns we saw.

Do you need extra practice for your young mathematicians?  If so, check out this free center activity, Dicey Numbers!
