These editing dice are a fun way to engage children in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 with editing and improving their work towards greater depth.

After completing their writing, children roll the die. Each face of the die highlights a different aspect of their writing for children to look at, and suggests an improvement to make.

This primary resource pack includes:

  • Labelled 4-sided editing die
  • Labelled 6-sided editing die
