Why You'll Love It!

Discussion Dots for any text - Use these Critical Thinking Questions to create a fun way to spark classroom conversation. Now editable too! Here is a great way to add verbal discourse and critical thinking questions into your school day. Print off this ‘Discussion Dice’ on my TPT page and then slip them into a plastic sheet protector.

Put them at each of the students tables and read each of the prompts. My classroom receives weekly magazines such as News Weekly and Science and Math magazines from Scholastics. After we are done reading an article (in a small group or partner work), I pass out my big foam dice to each group and have them take turns rolling the dice to select a ‘Think Dot’ question. You can also use smaller dice as well. I choose questions that are on each of Bloom’s Taxonomy levels of questioning.

Walk around the room and hear the great verbal discourse you hear. You can also change up the questions for a more personalize book or article. I hope this helps your students become better at their critical thinking skills. You can even change the task and create a writing center for students to roll the dice three times and write their response.
