You're probably busying getting ready (or already cheering, depending on when you read this) for the big game today!
The last thing you want to do is plan for week. That's why I've been helping you out with "The Sunday Save" series. Each Sunday I've been giving you a freebie game that hopefully saves you some time in your planning for the week.
Last week's Sunday Save was a huge hit, based on your comments! Did you use it in your classroom? I'd love to hear how it went! If you didn't use it yet, it would still work perfectly tomorrow as a Super Bowl celebration game!
Now, on to today's Sunday Save.
I loved using dice in the classroom. Mostly because I had like a thousand of them and my students loved throwing them across the room using the large green foam-y dice that you have probably seen in some of my game pictures throughout the blog. They thought they were cool because they were big and fun. *I* thought they were cool because they made a much quiter sound when rolled :)
Today's "game" is more of a writing assignment -but - shhh, the students will think it's a game because it uses dice.
Basically the student rolls a dice three times: one to pick a setting, one to roll a character, and one to roll a plot. Then the students write a story based on what they roll. Sounds like fun right? A while ago I did a similar game for reading called "Read and Roll." Check it out as well!
You can print out this sheet, laminate it, place it at a center, and use it all year long. I've also put a blank one in, too, in case you want to modify or change it up throughout the year!
Happy Sunday - Go football! (That's my non-committal cheer for any team :) )
