This Small Classroom: Parts of Speech Dice

This cube is intended to use with the word wall in my classroom.  We are just moving into learning about parts of speech, so I think this will come in handy very soon.  The students will roll the dice, see which part of speech they get, find such a word on the word wall and then use it in a sentence.  I got the idea from a reading comprehension cube in a friend’s classroom.  I have enough material and a foam cube for another dice, so I may make one of those too.  All that’s needed are a foam cube, six pieces of felt, needle, thread, scissors, rubber cement, and a sharpie.

First, I traced and cut the felt into squares that were about 1/4 inch (or less) larger than the cube’s sides.

I glued the felt squares to each side of the cube with rubber cement to help keep it in place while I sewed the pieces together. Then, I sewed the sides so that the seams created a ridge.

Finally, I used a sharpie to finish the sides of the dice.

About Katiehttps://thoughtsong.wordpress.comI like to dabble in writing out thoughts on scripture and life events.  Music, to me, is a dear friend, the structure that organizes my thoughts, and the feelings of my heart. Most of my time, however, is spent Teaching and Homemaking (especially trying to create hygge and live as a gluten-free baker). Take all these things away and I still have my true identity: I'm a sinner saved by grace and who dearly loves the Savior who first loved her. And that's really all that matters.
