‘Roll the Dice’ Activity for toddlers

Following instructions is an important skill that needs to be embedded in the children at a very early age, so that they can function effectively across different environments.  In order to enable the toddlers to practice ‘following instructions’, a game was called ROLL THE DICE was organized wherein a multi color dice was given to the children. There were colored cards with written instruction on them. Children were asked to roll the dice and pick up a card matching to the color that came on top of the dice. The instructions written on the card were read aloud by the teacher which they had to follow. The main purpose of the activity was to enhance listening skills and encourage the children to act accordingly. The game also helped them to learn about different colors and improve their vocabulary with new words like roll, pick, dice, etc. It was an interesting game as well as a great learning experience for them.
