Make a Dice

makedice  This app is great for vocabulary games. Make a Dice Lite allows users to create up to six dice, but instead of just having dice displaying numerical digits, users can customise and change the face of each die.  All languages and signs can be inputted. I have used Make a Dice to reinforce concepts such as comparatives and getting students to create sentences or dialogues on the words or phrases that get rolled.  I usually prepare words or phrases to drive an activity and then get students to work in pairs. This is a great way of getting students talking and listening in the target language.  Students also love shaking their ipads to roll the dices!  The Make a Dice Lite app is free, and I find it has all the functionality I need in my classrooms, however, you can buy the full version.
