Dice Topics

To get started, you just need some dice topics and a bit of imagination. There are 36 topics and 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 one of the 3 thematic sets (or all 3!) containing 12 dice each. The Teacher’s Guide will also provide a wealth of ready-made activities and resources, but if your budget is limited, you will find plenty of suggestions for using the dice on this website in the Free Resources section.

"I teach classes of around 30 students":
We recommend the Full Set which contains 216 dice (6 of each of the 36 most popular topics) 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.

All of the fun activities are designed to enable students to work alone, in pairs or in small groups with minimal teacher input and the book provides you with plenty of examples to help get your students started.

The worksheets are arranged in alphabetical order rather than difficulty and you are encouraged to manipulate the activities to suit your students. Therefore, the teacher's section aims to guide you on how to make the activities appropriate to you and your style of teaching whilst allowing room for differentiation and alteration according to the age and ability of the group.
