This Small Classroom: Letter Cubes

This Thursday when I was at the Dollar Store, I came across these packages of foam cubes. 

They are 50 for $1.  I got three and I think I’m going back for three more.

There are so many good things these could be used for, but I really need letter tiles at this point for center manipulatives and group work.

Two packages (100 cubes) and one black sharpie were enough for four students to have:

— 6 vowel cubes (a, e, i, o, u)

— 4 b, c, d, f, g, h cubes

— 6 j, k, l, m, n, p cubes (except one person gets 5)

— 5 qu, r, s, t, v, w cubes

— 4 x, z, s, t, m, p cubes (I only had two letters left and thought that extra s, t, m, and p letters were a good idea)

Here are some cubes I did with capital letters:

Yes, that’s my hot chocolate mug in the background.  It’s that time of year again. :)

*Disclaimer* The sharpie wears off a little bit on the blocks, so it might turn fingers a little black after too much handling.  BUT, it doesn’t smudge on the cube and the black comes off the fingers in a day or two. :)

About Katiehttps://thoughtsong.wordpress.comI like to dabble in writing out thoughts on scripture and life events.  Music, to me, is a dear friend, the structure that organizes my thoughts, and the feelings of my heart. Most of my time, however, is spent Teaching and Homemaking (especially trying to create hygge and live as a gluten-free baker). Take all these things away and I still have my true identity: I'm a sinner saved by grace and who dearly loves the Savior who first loved her. And that's really all that matters.
