A few years ago I wrote about using Rory’s Story Cubes for creative storytelling.
Recently I revisited the app, found some interesting updates, and created a spin-off activity to help my ESL students practice developing their understanding of verb tenses. By the end of the semester, they will have been studying verb tenses for 5 months, and hopefully they will realize that most people don’t use the Future Perfect Progressive.
Over the last few years, I’ve checked in on the app from time to time and noticed the small additions that were coming in. Now the app has 15 sets of die with a wide range of themes, and it allows you to roll anywhere from 1-9 die in your choice of a single set, or mixing as many die together as you like.
