Overview

This application is recommended for ages 4+.

Story Dice - creative storytelling cubes for plot, character, and setting ideas, Fun for actors, writers, and friends!

Story Dice is a creative tool to prompt ideas for plot, character, and setting. This idea generator can be used effectively for both written and oral storytelling.

This app can be used with a wide variety of age groups ranging from preschoolers to teenagers.
The user interface is simple enough for ages 3+ to use without any additional instruction. The use of the app does not require reading, so it is an ideal tool for using in a preschool story circle (see lesson plans) as well as a general writing prompt for all ages without reading or native language barriers.

Features:
-High-resolution graphics
-Choose number of dice to roll, 1-10.
-Realistic dice sounds and still images.
-140 pictograms in dictionary.
-No reading necessary.
-Optional game instructions included in app.

Game Ideas:
1. Charades - Use the single die roll to determine a charade item.
2. Stories With Friends - Form a circle. Roll the Story Dice (any number, 1-10). Create a sentence including all of the items from the dice. Pass to the next person and repeat, adding onto the story each time.
3. Song Challenge - Roll a single story die. Come up with a song that includes that item in the lyrics.
4. Poems With Friends - Same Stories With Friends, using only 1-2 dice, and create rhyming lines.
5. Drama Club - Roll dice (any number). Form a character using these items, then create an improv skit with friends as your characters!


Education Applications:

Story Dice is primarily useful in higher order activities under Blooms Taxonomy, particularly Synthesis, where you create, invent, compose, predict, plan, construct, design, imagine, propose, devise, and/or formulate. You can devise less and more challenging activities, as in the following example.

Sample Journal Activity My Perfect Day using Blooms Taxonomy

Student/Short Version: Student will create a character using Story Dice, then describe/write/dramatize their own perfect day from their characters perspective.

Teacher Version: Student will create a unique character using the Story Dice for seed ideas. After writing a short character sketch, student will compose a Journal Entry called My Perfect Day writing from their new characters perspective. The evaluation step is the highest order activity and is a self-grading option.
