Two players each roll a dice at the same time. The first person to say the correct answer of one dice subtracted from the other gets a point. The first player to 10 points wins.
Players take turns rolling one dice. Each time they write down the number they get until they get to 10 numbers. However, if a player rolls a 1 they must erase all of their points and start again. The first player to 10 numbers stops the game and adds up both players points. The player with the most points wins.
On a scrap piece of paper number 1-6. Together with a partner decide on rules for each number, such as:
Each time you roll the dice look to see what move you need to do and do it!

As has become tradition in our class at the beginning of the year, today Mrs. Keiver joined us to create a talking stick for our class. She shared this Aboriginal story with us about the talking stick:
Next, we each got to choose an item to add to our diamond willow stick.
This talking stick is special to our class and will be useful during class discussions and meetings. I can’t wait to try it out!
What did you add to our talking stick?
