I have this laminated and on the wall/desk and I ask my pupils to Roll a large rubber dice to encourage a plenary at the end of the lesson
I have made them both pastel themed so it’s easy on the eye and I’ve also designed one for EYFS/KS1 and KS2. As you can see, both templates have prompting questions to see what the children have learnt, see what they enjoyed but also see what they found tricky!
Inspired by @teaching_with_miss_s’s Plenary dice, I though it was such an amazing and created idea that i had to create my own Rainbow coloured one! I can’t wait to use it in my classroom! Its a great way to end a lesson, they children can throw the dice and discuss in pair or as a whole class what they learnt. Thank you @teaching_with_miss_s for the inspiration.
Use these to encourage students to ask and answer plenary questions at the end of the lesson.
A useful plenary and/or Assessment for Learning tool which encourages students to ask questions or make observations. Easily adapted.
Net of a dice with questions for pupils to answer. I've used it for maths but could be used in any subject.
Students throw the dice twice, once to get the number for the bottom row and then a second number to get the side row. They then use the two numbers to gain the correct question or task. Has been successfully used at the end of the lesson and the students enjoy using the dice.
A template for making dice with plenary questions on them. This first is for reflecting on learning from an individual lesson. The second is inspired by growth mindset work, allowing children to reflect on the learning skills they have used that day. It is editable so you can change or add your own questions. In my class, the first child to tidy up on each table collects the dice and then rolls it to leads the discussion. I found it a useful way to engage them all in the plenary and keep children focused and occupied while you wait for others to be ready.
Editable plenary dice template used to gather children’s understanding/ how they found the lesson.
Use this template to create a plenary pairwork resource. Fill the gaps in as you wish, pupils roll the dice and translate or carry out the specified activity. Could also be used as a starter activity.
In pairs, pupils roll a dice to carry out the plenary tasks you have entered on the slide. To make it more challenging, pupils must change one detail in the phrase.
59 amendable and adaptable PowerPoint slides with starter and plenary activities to add to any lesson. These can be edited depending on topic being studied, and differentiated depending on students being taught. Slides can be printed out individually to be used as worksheets. Created for SEMH students these resources are visual and colourful. Activity slides include: Quiz Spot the difference Spot the mistake Fact of the day Brain dump Self assessment Peer assessment A to Z Dice game …and many more.
Several games that can be run from the whiteboard with ease, which students can do at the back of their books. Included games are: - Column addition - Column subtraction - Grid Multiplication (U x HTU and TU x HTU) - Column Multiplication (U x HTU and TU x HTU) - Division (bus stop method - division by single and double digits) I have run these at the start and end of lessons, and kids love them. They have now replaced any scheme of work teaching relating to the basic calculations, as I just scatter them in all throughout the year at random times or if a task finishes much earlier than planned. Beware! Some students get very competitive! See my other version to get the Excel Dice Roller @ 50% off!
Roll the dice - consolidate/plenary activity Bright and colourful for learners to consolidate learning/understanding
A good way to end the lesson. Press the spin button and see what social media themed plenary it will land on students then end the lesson in the task. Click on the app and the activity will appear to increase interest and engagement I've also created it in a dice format and five each group one to use and they can do this on their own and if under running complete two. Students really liked this task.
These plenary dice are a fun way for children to engage with reviewing and improving their work at the end of a lesson, or at suggested points throughout a session. Exit slips are included so that children can also record their feedback on the lesson, supporting teacher planning for future learning sessions.
Pupils work in pairs. They take it in turns to roll the dice and say in French the corresponding phrase. For example, “Je porte des chaussures et un pull”.
Great little plenary chooser that your pupils will get used to fast. I recommend picking up a few D20 dice (10 for £3 on ebay) and giving one to each group. Then when you want to check understanding either at the end or part way through a lesson they roll the dice and do the corresponding activity. Pupils enjoy having a semblance of control but you still get the required plenary. If you want a more controlled experience have one pupil roll the dice and every pupil has to do that specific plenary. Digital dice rollers are also available online.
This is a 6 page power point with each slide being a mat that can be printed or shown in lessons to sum up the learning. You will need a dice per group/pair. 6 tasks on each slide. slide one - summary/knowledge tasks slide two -number tasks based on consolidating the learning Slide 3 - drawing tasks slide 4 - writing tasks slide 5 - creating a learning task for the lesson slide 6 - helping others task
The resource is designed to be used as a plenary, allowing for peer and self assessment as the dice are thrown a question on each side of the dice can be answered by the pupil, or they can select another pupil to answer the question. The dice take up 2 A4 pages. They should be printed on to card, cut out and then stuck together with sellotape. The dice have general evaluative questions, as well as subject specific questions to be Art, however the questions can be easily edited. The questions can also allow for high order questioning to be used. They can be used with a variety of year groups as they are very easily adapted.
