Benefits of Do-A-Dot Fact Fluency Dice Activities

Many of our students find it just too hard and frustrating to work on fluency and automatic recall. And they can become off task and distracted if the activities are not engaging enough.

So we are always on the lookout for some extra novelty factor to keep them hooked!


Dab & Dot Activities

Dice games have long been our secret weapon! Do your students seem to understand more when you let them use dice during math time? So do ours!

When we created these activities we wanted to incorporate dice but to keep the engagement levels high we wanted something extra! And we think we found just the thing…


Do-A-Dot Markers

Introducing the Do-A-Dot Marker! The kids just love using these markers. They love the dabbing and dotting because they don’t have to write and as you know the fine motor strength of the writing process takes so much out of the kids.

So the dab and dot markers really helps to keep the kids engaged and focussed on the math! They have so much fun doing dab and dot printables they can forget they are learning… What a result!  they’re a MUST for any teacher’s toolkit… give them a try you won’t regret it!
