This last Sunday, we had a Primary Teacher Training Meeting and all of the primary teachers these Primary Dice that I made for them.
I found the idea on Sugardoodle and thought it was a great thing to give to our teachers to show them how thankful we are for them for all they do for the children in our primary!
The dice are for the primary teachers to use at the end of the lesson if they have extra time and the children have been well-behaved. Each side has a very simple activity that can be done without any extra preparation. Activities include: singing a song that goes along with the lesson, acting out a favorite scripture story, or memorizing a scripture.
Update: I have come to find out that Sugardoodle’s link no longer works. Unfortunately, I also don’t have the file, but I’ve included what is on each side of the dice and what activity goes along with each picture, so you can make your own.
Here are the 6 sides and what activity the picture represents:
1. Music note (sing a song about the lesson)
2. Scriptures (scripture story)
3. Two kids (act out a scripture story)
4. Four kids holding hands (read or recite a scripture as a class)
5. Question mark (“Who Am I?” game using a person from the lesson)
6. CTR shield (choose an activity)
First, I cut out all the pictures using a 1 inch circle punch. I used 1 1/2 inch wooden blocks (I found mine at Joann’s) and used Modpodge to glue each picture to the block. After they were dry, I used a finishing spray to hopefully make them more durable, and then printed and laminated the key to go with the game. Lastly, I wrapped them up so they were nice and cute!
I think they are pretty fun and I kept one for myself for the next time that I am a primary teacher. I’m sure it will come in handy.
