Use these dice games as a fun way to practice adding simple numbers.
Students will roll the dice and then add the two numbers.
If you use these as a center, you may want to copy the answers onto the back of the dice games. Then they would be self-checking.
Print out copies of the recording sheet for each student. They will need one copy for each game they play. If this is at a center, you could laminate the recording sheets or put them in a plastic sleeve to make change out of the center easy.
These games Kindergarten/First Grade level.
Games 1-6 include 2 sets of pictures. The students will need to add the two sets of pictures together to get a sum.
Games 7-8 help students practice the “Counting On” strategy. There is one number and one set of pictures. They should put the number in column A “in their head” and then count on with the pictures to get the sum.

Games 11-12 help students practice the “Near Doubles” strategy. There are two numbers for students to add together.
