I use dice a ton in my 1st/2nd grade classrooms, but they could easily be used at home for math practice!

With my preschooler, we rolled and did an action. For example, here she rolled a 2 and did 2 big jumps.

This is a great way to get your kiddo moving and learning at the same time! Here she rolled a 4 and did giant steps.

5 push-ups!

Next, we tried to find each number of objects. She rolled a 5 and was counting the flowers to check if there were 5 flowers. After counting, she figured out there were way more than 5.

Counting the bars on the deck to find the number 6.

Your older child can practice adding 2 or 3 (or more!) numbers together.

I always have the kids write an equation to match. Use dice with dots for more support.

Dice can also be used to practice subtraction.

This 2nd grader added the 2 dice together, and then subtracted the dice, knowing the biggest number comes first!
