Individually, pupils can be given worksheets to write the name of things in the classroom based on the pictures.



Pupils learn a total of 11 items in the classroom. However, a dice has only 6 faces. Therefore, teacher should create a few different picture dice templates. Thus, pupils can exchange their dice to learn to name more objects in the classroom.



Pupils can take the picture dice home as gifts. They are highly motivated by the picture dice and can do more practice after the lesson.
