Storage Idea: Plastic Bin & Dividers

A number of people have asked for suggestions on how to store the insert cards for their Education Cubes. Heidi from Starts At Eight shares how she uses a plastic bin and dividers to keep the insert cards neatly organized and easily accessible.

Vowel Blends

The most recent addition to the Education Cubes Members Only site are the Vowel Blend insert cards! Included are five sets of cards; one for each of the vowels {a,e,i,o,u}, paired with all the consonants.  

Vowel Blends Letter a

Does your little one need some extra practice with blending consonants and vowels? Add some active fun by using the Vowel Blend insert cards! Roll a blend and then call out a word beginning with the sound. Or use the Vowel Blend insert cards in one cube and various consonants from the Lowercase Alphabet insert cards in another cube. Roll both cubes and say the word formed! There are tons of possibilities!

Do you have an idea of how to use the Vowel Blend insert cards?

You can access the Vowel Blend 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 “Phonics” link found on the “Early Concepts” page or on the “Language Arts” page.}
