Jim George's insight:

Print out the cards to make a grid, 5x6. Number six boxes, write 5 items in each box. With a partner, take turns to throw the dice & choose one item from that box. Match it to a picture & put your colour counter on it. Winner = 1st person to connect four pictures in a line (up/down, across or diagonally). Extend the game - see how many connect 4s you can make, using all the items.

Obviously very biased, as this is from one of my classes...using Fotobabble on an iPhone to record students singing/playing without the hassle/drama of video - great for sharing with parents, and really motivating/rewarding for YLs to hear their own voices back (and to see some context).
