What a fun and interesting way for a child to be creative. Imagidice is perfect for becoming a great story teller. The box has dice with different pictures and the manual will tell you what each picture means. Then you tell a story using the block you have rolled. You can take turns of have a one person tell a story at a time. With the many dice and 6 pictures on each one your story is bound to be different every time. Our daughter really likes these and I think it is because she can be super creative. She loves to make funny stories and quite enjoys listening to the stories that we make up. We normally do a few rounds once to twice during our school week. As our daughter gets older I am hooping she gets even better with story telling. So, we will be using Imagidice during our next few years of school as well. Definitely check them out and see what your child would enjoy.

Anything on the list that is not done during the week I give her a few problems on each. Because I want to make sure that she has understood the concepts I make the problems hard. If they are too easy there is no way for me to know if she really understands or if she can just do easy problems. For history I make questions based off what I have read from the textbook. I pull out the key information. We also do social studies and geography. I make questi
