- 3 dice for every 10 students.
- Divide the class into teams of five.
- Have two teams face and stand in front of each other. Put a die in between the teams.
- Roll the dice and have the first student in each team compete to call out the month corresponding to the number on the die (e.g. 5 = May).
- Other team members can help. The faster student receives two points for their team and the slower student gets 1 point after saying the month.
- The students move to the end of the line and the next students in line play.
- Repeat this step until all students have played.
- Add a second die and repeat until all students have played (Let the students roll).
- Add a third die and repeat until all students have played (Let the students roll).
- If you just use 2 dice for the whole game you will almost never get earlier or later months. (January is impossible, December is rare).
- Use something like playing cards for points.
- This works better with under 20 students.
- If the number is over 12 students re-roll.
