Dice are such a great way to build on students’ number sense skills. They are great for subitizing, one-to-one correspondence, and can be used to build addition and subtraction skills.

All this and students love using dice because it feels like they are playing a game instead of doing math ‘work’!

I developed these math activities with this in mind, and I know our students have loved visiting these centers.

Number sense work mats

Roll, Write and Swipe dice worksheets for kindergarten math centers. reinforce number sense with dot patterns, ten frames, number bonds, number line and tally marks.

These re-usable dice mats are great for building on students’ number sense. They are a perfect challenge for this time in the school year, when students have been practicing using ten frames, tallies and number lines. I love the extra challenge of the number bonds.

Number Sense can be so fun to work, and I love coming up with new hands-on centers for my students.

This is my favourite worksheets out of the whole pack! It really makes our students think of the different strategies that they can use when adding or subtracting.

They roll two dice, then draw the dot patterns. Then they have to use those two numbers in a number sentence (you can do addition or subtraction), and draw a picture of the number sentence. Finally, they have to show their number sentence another way- I used tallies, but they could use ten frames, number line or any other strategy that they like.
