Snip, snip. A bit of glue. Job done.
Bringing a bit of craft to the classroom for younger learners. These dice addi a bit of personalisation to practising so and such with adjectives. A little bit of imagination, a couple of cuts, a dab of glue and hey presto!

such an + adjective + noun
WHO IS IT FOR?
- Level (CEFR A2-B2)
- Ages 9 yrs. and older
This activity is best used with younger learners after looking at so/such with adjecives. This little game
You will need (per pair):
- the two handouts below (a six-sided – d6 – so/such die and an eight-sided – d8 – adjective die)
- 2 pairs of scissors
- 20-30 minutes of class time
- Put the students into pairs
- Students brainstorm 8 of their most interesting adjectives.
- The students write the adjectives on each side of the d8.
- One student cuts out the d8 and the other the d6 before sticking it together.
- Pairs exchange adjective dice with other pairs.
- The teacher sets a topic for the round. Each student must roll both dice before making sentence that is somehow connected to the topic. i.e. Topic = FOOD. Student A rolls SO and BEAUTIFUL and says “The cake was so beautiful that I didn’t want to eat it”.
- Each student can claim 2 points for each sentence they produce. If they hesitate for longer than 10 seconds, but they can produce a sentence, they get one point. If the sentence is not relevant to the topic, then no points.
- After a few minutes, the teacher changes the topic and students exchange dice.
- Repeat for as many rounds as desired.
A quick and easy DIY dice-chucker for younger learners! The game itself also works well with adults and older learners, however, you’d need to make enough dice yourself as grown-ups tend to be a bit funny about using safety scissors and glue.
