Pocket Dice are large, soft dice with see-through pockets on all six faces. This book includes the insertable pages, and covers different ways in which they can be used – although the dice themselves are not sold via SPELD. The inserts are designed to fit around an Elizabeth Richards Pocket Cube Dice, but any 10 x 10cm dice with pockets will suffice.

When used well, these dice are a versatile maths manipulative. By sliding different inserts into the pockets you can create a variety of games and activities to target specific topics and years levels. Changing the inserts allows teacher to make the tasks simpler or more difficult. Comprehensive teaching notes are provided for each game or activity.

  • Geometry
  • Directional language
  • Time
  • Addition and multiplication
