A, Bee, C, Preschool: Building Shapes. Kindergarten readiness: Colored craft sticks are labeled with the number of sides each shape has, ie: 3 purple sticks - triangle. The children will choose a color and build the matching colored shape from the sticks.
Simple solution to all your dice problems! Stick two dice in a small tupperware container. Have the children shake the container and look at the dice. No "throwing" dice or losing them either. I will probably use foam dice as they are noiseless.
