Don't you love these tiny containers? I sure do! My school's math coach suggested a fantastic use for these. Our district's math curriculum is Investigations Math, and it includes many games where the students have to roll two dice.
Problem: Sometimes it drives me crazy when the kids roll their two dice and they fly to opposite sides of the room...
Solution: Roll the dice in this cute container! (There really is enough room for the dice to roll inside there.)
I love keeping these tiny dice boxes in a tub and they are instantly ready to pull out for games! By the way, I bought these at Dollar Tree. A pack of 8 for one dollar! Can't beat that.
I also found these cute little colored ones at Staples, and I love using them to store play money to pull out for counting/games involving money. They hold a perfect amount.
I think purchasing storage containers is an addiction for all teachers, and I think these are especially hard to resist!
