This cube is intended to use with the word wall in my classroom. We are just moving into learning about parts of speech, so I think this will come in handy very soon. The students will roll the dice, see which part of speech they get, find such a word on the word wall and then use it in a sentence. I got the idea from a reading comprehension cube in a friend’s classroom. I have enough material and a foam cube for another dice, so I may make one of those too. All that’s needed are a foam cube, six pieces of felt, needle, thread, scissors, rubber cement, and a sharpie.
First, I traced and cut the felt into squares that were about 1/4 inch (or less) larger than the cube’s sides.
I glued the felt squares to each side of the cube with rubber cement to help keep it in place while I sewed the pieces together. Then, I sewed the sides so that the seams created a ridge.
Finally, I used a sharpie to finish the sides of the dice.
