Each center is two pages (the play/questions and the answer key). The centers are self-checking so that the students can check their answers to monitor their understanding.
The basic directions are that the students will roll two dice, find the sum of the dice, and answer the question that matches that sum. However, there are several options for you to choose based on your needs.
Option 1: This center can be independent work. The students can just move through the questions by rolling the dice. This makes it a little more engaging than a basic passage with question worksheet.
Option2: Use this center as a partner center. Have the students take turns rolling the dice and answering the questions. You can also do this two ways:
Have the partners take turns rolling the dice. When one partner rolls the dice, have both partners answer the same question. They can compare and contrast their answers before checking the answer key. Then have the other partner roll the dice, and repeat the process.
Have the partners take turns rolling the dice, and have each student solve the question that matches his or her own sum. Have the students answer their respective questions at the same time so that there is no downtime. Then they can discuss and compare their answers. Each student can initial the square of the question he or she answered.
