Rockin’ & Rollin’ Dice Game to Build Fact Fluency

I am always looking for ways to give my students a meaningful way to practice math facts in a fun way!

One of my favorite Math Activities is Rockin’ & Rollin’ Dice Warm-Up!  Rockin’ & Rollin’ is a self-contained Math Warm-Up Game that reviews some important addition and subtraction math skills!

    All materials needed for the game are stored inside each student’s desk. Students have 7 minutes to complete 30 correct problems.

    My class does Rockin’ & Rollin’ two times a week as a math warm up. I simply say to the class, “It’s Rockin’ & Rollin’ time and they know what to do!

    They pull their materials from their desk and I give them a few minutes to set up their supplies and get ready.  If a student is unsure of what to do for their level, they must ask me before I say go. Once the timer has started, the room goes quiet and no one is allowed to make a peep 🙂 That seven minutes of silence is golden on some days!

    Materials needed for each student:

    • Zippered bag of dice: 1 1-6 die, 5-10 die, & 13-18 die}
    • Felt {for the room to stay quiet}
    • Spiral notebook with Rockin’ & Rollin’ Grid inside {or  Rockin’ & Rollin’ Worksheets}

    There are two simple rules for Rockin’ & Rollin’ in my classroom:

    1. You may not talk during Rockin’ & Rollin’ time
    2. You may not EVER share your level {just in case some kids don’t progress as far as others!}

    In the unit, I’ve included an alternative to using the notebook system I use. You can simply print the levels for the kids from included pages.There are two versions included:

    • Rockin’ & Rollin’ Worksheets with lines for the students to write their problems.
    • Rockin’ & Rollin’ Worksheets with boxes for students to write their problems {without worrying about adding the operation symbols}
