Dice Topics

To get started, you just need some dice topics and a bit of imagination. The dice are sold in packs of 6 identical dice. The rationale behind this is that it allows teachers to split classes into up to 6 groups, with each group being able to work on the sample topic(s). But we also offer various mixed packs suitable for individual use. For example:

"I'm a parent, therapist or private tutor teaching individuals or small groups":
We recommend the Starter Pack which contains 25 dice (1 of each topic) and suggestions for use. The Teacher’s Guide will also provide a wealth of ready-made activities and resources. If your budget is limited, you can opt for the Essentials Pack which contains one of each of the 9 most popular topics. You should also complete your collection with the Add-ons Mixed Pack containing 9 additional themes aimed at encouraging more complex sentence-building and grammar practice.

"I teach classes of around 30 students":
We recommend the Full Set which contains 150 dice (6 of each topic) and the Teacher's Guide. If your budget is limited, you can opt for the packs of 6 identical dice instead, selecting the topics that are the most relevant to you and building up your collection over time if you wish. You should also complete your collection with the Add-ons Full Set (or single packs of 6 identical dice) containing 9 additional themes aimed at encouraging more complex sentence-building and grammar practice.
