Nutcracker Number Matching

Airamty from My Little Princess World and her little girl used the Number insert cards along with some nutcracker printables that she saw on The Activity Mom (which came from PreKinders) to practice counting and matching!

Roll the nutcracker cube and count the nutcrackers. Now, find the corresponding number on the other cube. Click on the picture above to see the Nutcracker Number Matching in action!

After seeing Airamty’s post, I was inspired to create Nutcracker Counting insert cards. You can access the insert cards by joining the Education Cubes Members Only Site.

More Word Families…

I have been plugging away at the Education Cubes Word Family insert cards. The most recent additions to the Members Site are:

–ap, –ar, –at, –ate, –aw, –ay

Plus, I added a set of insert cards with all of the Word Families. This set includes all of the 37 most common used word families, plus quite a bit more!

Word Families

These can be used along with the Lower Case Alphabet cards to make words! Insert some word family cards in one cube and some consonants in another cube. Roll both cubes and sound out the word that is formed!

These insert cards can be accessed by joining the Education Cubes Members Only Site.

Confessions of a Homeschooler’s LETTER OF THE WEEK Insert Cards

As promised, there are some new Education Cubes insert cards on the Members Only Site that I am SUPER excited to share with you! I have partnered with Erica from Confessions of a Homeschooler to bring to you three awesome sets of insert cards to go along with her Letter of the Week Preschool Curriculum!

COAH Letter of the Week Capital Letters

All images are used with the permission of Erica from Confessions of a Homeschooler.

The three downloads, which can be accessed by joining the Education Cubes Members Only Site are:

  • COAH Letter of the Week Capital Letters (shown above)
  • COAH Letter of the Week Lower Case Letters
  • COAH Letter of the Week Pictures (just the pictures…no letters)

Designed to be used as a supplement to the Letter of the Week Preschool Curriculum, there are TONS of possible ways to use these! One idea is to roll the cube and Identify the picture and the letter. For more of a challenge say the sound that the letter makes!

Do you have ideas on how to use the Letter of the Week Education Cubes? Leave a comment with your ideas!!!

(Attention Members: These cards can be found on the second Alphabet page.)
