For those who are not familiar with "Hands-On Equation" dice, the red die is numbers 0 to 5, while the green one is numbered 5-10.
For our activity, Aikman had to choose one colored die --either red or green -- to roll, along with the regular die. He would read the number on the colored die, and then continue counting the dots on the second die.
For instance, if he rolled a 2 on the red die, and then rolled 4 dots on the 2nd die, he would say 2, and then continue counting the dots -- 3, 4, 5, 6. Afterwards, he would then find the card that corresponded to the number.
If one uses the green die, the child practices counting in the teens. This has been great practice with my son identifying the number cards necessary to make these numbers -- and he's FINALLY getting it.
I ended up making a worksheet for him to record his answers. The first column was to write the number on the colored die. He drew the dots for the second column. The third column was for recording the number to which he counted. (I love the photo above, as Aikman decided he wanted to draw the outline for the number 10.... ahhh, my artsy little one!)
I also like that the red die can land on zero, which reinforces that 0 comes before 1 when counting.
