There are so many ways to work on math and counting. And I love the rolling math activities! They are such a great way to work on count, addition or multiplication without having a worksheet.
You get different levels of learning out of one fun printable!
I love that this is one set that can be used all year! You can have loads of fun doing this candy jar math activity.
You have three levels you can work with. There is counting from 1 to 6, addition with two 6-sided dice, and multiplication with two 6-sided dice or two 12-sided dice. I like it when you have options that can go or use with many kids.
There are two options for the candy jar. You have colored or black and white. This allows you to save money or use the page just one time.
Things to use with this printable:
- copy paper
- white cardstock
- clear counters
- dot marker
- laminating pouches
- 6 sided double dice
- 12-sided double dice
Ways to use the Roll a Candy Jar Math
There are many ways to use these printables. I thought I would show you a few of them.
I love having hands-on items to use with these printables. You can see how we set it up for the 1 to 6 version. It has clear counters in rainbow colors to match the set.
You have them roll the dice and then add the correct color to the jar.
Another way to use these printables is with a dot marker. You have a white jar so you can do just that. It also saves on those that don’t want to print color pages.
The dot markers match the colors to the sheet. You can use it for all three math types.
You can see how we set it up for multiplication practice. This is a fun way to work on math facts. We use the hands-on items when we can. It was simple and easy to do. She is using the 12 sided dice page.
Both types of math have a recording sheet. This allows you to know what rolls of the dice they had. If you want to reuse the page put it in a sheet protector.
