We started using the education cubes more this past week. So I wanted to report on it! The kids really enjoyed it, and I def plan to start incorporating it weekly.
First off, I realized I had not been printing the inserts correctly (I thought they looked small), and this was posing a problem, since they would move around and fly out when my children kicked and tossed the cubes around. But I figured out that the printer was printing them in portrait mode instead of landscape mode....problem now solved! Thank goodness, b/c it was getting frustrating!
I used them this week for two different activities. The first was for colors with my 2yo. We used one cube, and a container of vehicle shaped counters. He would roll the cube, and then find a vehicle that matched the color. We got the color templates from the Education Cubes Member Only Site.
For my K we put his Chinese flash cards into the cubes, and the kids rolled, kicked, etc... them and he would say the chinese word of the card that was facing up
Definitely more fun than normal old flashcards!
