Great ABCYA.com games to practice adding using dice + students can differentiate within the game

ABCYA.com offers lots of educational games available for children. Two games that I would like to spotlight in this blog post are the sum of all dice and roll to the finish.

In the Sum of all Dice students choose the color of their dice, how many dice (2,3, or 4), as well as if they would like the dice to show numbers or dots. Students then swipe to roll the dice, add the numbers on the dice, and select the correct answer.

In Roll to the Finish, students select the color of the dice, how many dice (1, 2, or 3), choose dots or numbers, choose their character, and swipe to roll the dice. Students add the dice and select the correct answer. If the correct answer is chosen they will move that number of spots on the game board (goal is to get to 60). Students then let Snake Eyes (computer) have its' turn. Again, the goal is to get to 60 points and beat Snake Eyes!

Embedded below is a 2 minute and 18 second YouTube tutorial.


Take care,
