Dice & Domino Math Fun!

Hi all, I’ve been working on some new fun math worksheets for you and they’re finally done! Awhile back I put up domino addition and subtraction math sheets, but today I’m taking that to a whole new level!

–> Dice & Domino Math Games <–

What’s Included?

  • Domino Math: Addition (Can work with dice as well)
  • Domino Math: Subtraction
  • Domino Math: Multiplication
  • Preschool Yahtzee
  • Preschool Probability
  • Preschool Roll and Trace
  • Elementary Roll and Trace
  • Elementary Yahtzee
  • Elementary Probability
  • Clear the Board Game

 

I made worksheets for preschool level through about 3rd grade. Here is Tinker Bell doing a roll and trace worksheet.

The Teeny Tot wanted in on  the action so I made her a probability sheet. She rolls the die and we count the dots on the top. Then I show her which number is the same as what she counted and she fills in a square next to it. Whichever number’s row is filled first wins!

Strawberry Shortcake did my domino addition worksheet using the Dice in Dice. Then she asked for a multiplication worksheet, so I added that in to the download as well.

Here is Turbo. He’s doing a roll and trace sheet too, but this one is for elementary students. He rolls one die, then adds the numbers on the outer die and inner die together. Then he finds the answer on his sheet and traces over it.

Strawberry Shortcake and Turbo are racing to see who can clear their markers off the game board first. They guessed which numbers would be easiest to roll, then each placed 8 markers next to the numbers they chose. Next they took turns rolling the die and adding the two numbers together. If they had a marker on the board next to that number, they could remove it from the board. First one to clear the board wins. We just used clear bingo markers, but you can use whatever you have handy including cheerios!

As soon as the Teeny Tot saw the others playing this game she insisted on it as well. I changed it up a bit for her though. I had her put some colored unifix cubes on the grid, then I put the colored dice in a box and had her pick one out. For each die she picked out, she could remove one cube of the same color. Once her cubes were all off the board she won! Yay!

Just to keep it real…then she did this.

Threw the cubes and dice all over the table for fun. Which kind of worked out because then I just had her put the cubes all back together by color.

 

You can certainly use these games with any dice or dominoes you own, but I found these fun dice that help motivate my kiddos to want to do the games! They’re called Jumbo Dice in Dice by Learning Resources.

(Note: They also sell regular sized ones called Dice in Dice, but I saw them in person and wouldn’t recommend them as much. They are really small and the kids had a hard time seeing the dots on the inside dice. It also didn’t seem to have enough room to roll around inside either which resulted in several of the same numbers being rolled. Just my opinion…)

 

I also have the Learning Resources Double-Six Dominoes bucket.

Hope you enjoy the Dice & Domino Math Games!

Note: Some of these games were inspired by kidscount1234 , make sure to check out her site for more fun math ideas!

  1. Hello Erica,

    This looks like something my boys will LOVE!

    I just have to tell you something. I’ve been doing a TON of research on curriculum for the last 3 years as I plan to homeschool my twin 3 yr old boys and your site is the ABSOLUTE best one I have seen (and at this point I’ve literally bookmarked well over 100 homeschool sites) in terms of content and MOST DEFINITELY in terms of navigation!! The layout of your site with the seamless, easy navigation is heaven sent for the ADD brain like mine ;o) I love your stie because you have EVERYTHING in it’s proper order, in it’s proper place. I don’t have to fumble through a page upon page to get what I’m looking for. Other sites offer great content but unfortunately are difficult to navigate through because content is not organized, it’s everywhere!!

    So THANK YOU, THANK YOU and THANK YOU!!!!

    • Wow,
      Thanks so much for the lovely comment, I always love to hear how God uses my blog to bless others! And I’m so glad you find the navigation easy, I do try, but it’s hard to keep it all organized LOL!

  2. Thank you very much for sharing your time & talent. These Dice & Domino Math Games are fabulous. In fact, everything on this site is wonderful. Have a blessed day!

  3. Alyssa and I have been playing the math games found at Kidscount 1234 for about two years now. I absolutely love Shari’s website!! I attended a conference and sat in on four of her workshops in one day. She’s amazing! I love all of her stuff!! I have been trying to get my readers to visit her website for awhile now because she has GREAT free printables and games like you do. But, I am not sure if anyone has taken the time to visit yet. I also use many of her calendar board ideas. Thank you for making extra math sheets and for making them free to us all. It is appreciated! I’ll have to print out a few today to play with Alyssa. I have to say … I agree with your opinion on the dice in dice. I am going to check and see if our local teacher store carries the Jumbo Dice in Dice as singles – I haven’t seen them yet. We have been using the regular sized ones and I don’t really care for them either even though Alyssa doesn’t seem to mind. LOL! God bless,
    Tracey M.

  4. Thanks so much for sharing. These sheets are great!

  5. Thank you! Thank you! Anything to help with making math interesting is so helpful. First kid going through homeschool right now and numbers are not her strong suit.

  6. Thank you so much Erica! You really have no idea how much your blog helps me in my homeschool journey. I know you must spend so much time on your blog and I appreciate you so very much. We have been doing Exp. Earth this year (and of course love it) and the other day my husband was just talking to my 7 year and was amazed that he knew all of the capitols to so many countries! Offering fun worksheets and games for free is such a blessing to me and all that come to visit you! We are looking to do roadtrip next year!

  7. Thanks so much for sharing these and your other printables! My boys love playing with dice and dominoes. These will be perfect to add to our math curriculum. I’ve been following via Google Reader for over a year and your site is at the top of my list for homeschool resources. Thank you so much for your generosity!

  8. Thanks!!

  9. Today when I saw this post I was excited. This is my first year homeschooling my daughter in kindergarden and we hit the wall with math and she is not liking it. I am so excited to take a break from her math book and just play some math games. Thank you!!

  10. Thank you so much for these!! It is so amazing because just today I sat down with my little one to play some dice games to help learn about math. Before bed she begged me to let her play another math game!! (of course I was happy to move bedtime for a math game request) I cant wait to print these off and show her tomorrow. I have almost all of your curriculum materials and am so thankful for your generous heart and the time you have taken to put these together.
    Blessings to you and your family.

  11. As always, you did a great job with this worksheet. Thanks for sharing your talents with us.

  12. My son will love this! thanks!!

  14. This is such a great idea. I will have to use it with my son.

  16. Oh…I look at your fun supplies and I say to myself…”I NEED that!!” It’s bad;) I am headed out to buy those large dice!!

  17. I love this!! I checked out the links on Amazon for the dice and the dominoes. People said that the dice in dice was confusing for the kiddos, did you find this? They said it was too many dots?? Just wanted your take on them, they look amazing.

  18. Thanks so much for this, a great blog and some very useful ideas. I’ve not seen those dice within a dice before… I don’t know why – I work with maths resources every day of my life, but still. I must sometimes go around with my eyes shut!

  19. Thanks so much for the free download. I know my homeschooling kids will love it.

  20. You are such a fabulous resource for our homeschool! Thank you for your free downloads!!!
    Oh and my daughter is absolutely loving your K4 curriculum. :)

    Thanks for being such a blessing to our family!

    Blessings!

    Mi nombre es Any y me ha encantado tu web, yo también soy cristiana y maestra en España. Me gustaría saber si tienes estas fichas en español, sino podría traducirlas, eso sí respetando tu copyright.

    Igual tengo un blog en donde pongo un poco de todo :o)

    Espero tu respuesta…

    Bendiciones…

  24. Not that I want you to take off your freebies from your site…but have you heard of teacherspayteachers.net? You can sell you stuff in there! You’re so talented…you should make some money out of it!

  25. These are wonderful worksheets! I’m so glad I found you:-)

    settle for book-marking and adding your RSS feed to
    my Google account. I look forward to new updates and will share this blog with my Facebook group.
