Apples, Apples, Apples

The most recent addition to the Education Cubes Members Only Site are the Apple insert cards!

Red Apple CountingApples

I created these to go along with some Apple Grid Games that I made. For more information on how to play (and to download the games for free) visit my Apple Grid Games post.

The apple insert cards could also be used for a number of different, fun, apple activities. For example, using the multi-colored apple insert cards, you could graph the number of different colored apples rolled.

You can access the word family insert cards as well as many, many more by joining the Education Cubes Members Only Site.

View a complete list of all the insert cards currently found on the Members Only Site.

{Attention Members: You can find these insert cards on the “Made for Grid Games” link found on the “Other” page.}

The most recent additions to the Education Cubes Members Only Site are the “o” word families:

–oat, –ock, –og, –oil, –oke, –oo, –ood, –oof, –ook, –ool, and –oom

Word Family (oo)

Practice reading word families by rolling a word on the cube and saying it! Then use it in a sentence. For more of a challenge, roll two words and make a rhyming sentence!

Spanish Shapes

Thanks to a member suggestion, the most recent addition to the Education Cubes Members Only Site are the Spanish Shape insert cards. In addition to the insert cards shown below, I have also included cards with red, blue, and yellow shapes.  

Basic Spanish ShapesBasic Spanish Shapes WhiteBasic Spanish Shape NamesBasic Spanish Shapes Black

These can be used as a fun way to work on Spanish vocabulary! Roll the cube and find an everyday object that is the same shape as on the insert card! Or, you could use the plain shape insert cards, roll the cube, and say the shape name in Spanish!

You can access the Spanish Shape insert cards as well as many, many more by joining the Education Cubes Members Only Site.

Do YOU have insert card ideas that you would like to suggest? Or, do you have ideas of how to use the Spanish Shape cards? Please leave a comment and share your ideas/suggestions!

Taking Requests…

imageI am in the process of creating a master list for all of the Education Cube insert card ideas. If you would like to make a suggestion, please leave your idea in a comment on this blog post. I will take the ideas posted here and add them to my master list, which will be my “go-to” for creating new insert cards! Thank you in advance for your suggestions! (Please note that making a suggestion does NOT mean that I will “for sure” be able to create the insert cards requested. The insert card idea(s) will be added to the list, but I cannot guarantee if and when the cards will be made.)

FYI: You can also view a complete list of all the insert cards currently found on the Members Only Site.
