Roll Graphing Game

This is a super simple printable game I quickly made for E when she asked to practice writing numbers: Roll Graphing Game!

I wanted something a little more fun than simply tracing numbers – I basically wanted her to have a real reason to be writing those numbers. Somehow, my Superhero Graphing Game popped into my head, and I thought I could do something similar with numbers. That game uses a spinner, but I figured we could make it even easier with just a regular die. I didn’t even use any clip art (except for the dice faces), so this is about the simplest printable ever 😉

And still, E was really engaged with this and kept cheering on her “favorite” number 5 🙂

Without even really noticing, she practiced handwriting, counting, comparing numbers, and even got a glimpse at probability.

Materials for Roll Graphing Game

 

 

What’s in the Printable PDF File?

 

This is basically a single page, no-prep game. However, the file contains three different versions: One with blank spaces for kids who are confident about writing their numbers or for use with manipulatives if you prefer those; one with dotted numbers in the first three columns; and one with dotted numbers in all spaces.

Simply print out the page you need, depending on your child’s developmental level. You can laminate for durability and reusability, of course.

Gather a die and some markers (one will do in a pinch, but different colors make everything more fun) or your manipulatives, and you’re ready to play.

 

How to Play the Roll Graphing Game

 

We used the version with three columns of dotted numbers. E rolled the die and wrote the matching numbers in the spaces, using the colors of her choice. Before she’d started, she’d picked out number 5 as her “favorite”, and we kept cheering it on with all we had.

Unfortunately, that didn’t help number 5 at all, and number 3 won by a fairly big margin. E thought that deserved a few checkmarks 🙂

We talked about how many times she’d rolled a 3, which number was in second place, which number was in last place, compared amounts, and more.

{Interestingly enough, E has not forgotten about this activity and actually told me “I wish number 5 had won!” out of nowhere 2 days later 😉 We weren’t home at the time, but I guess we’ll have to play another round soon 😉 }
