Using Education Cubes

photoblocks5

Photo blocks are so versatile! We’ve been using our set quite a bit lately. From the baby all the way to the big kids!

geographycubes

By adding printables from Education Cubes, we are able to use these blocks in so many different ways. I added pictures of the continents in the block. My daughter rolled the block and then had to name the continent and then color it on a map.

colormatchingame
We used them in a color matching game which I blogged about earlier.

catgame
Our newest game we call “Feed the Cat.”  I made this cat out of a soup can and printed some cupcakes (big hint---check out Totally Tots on Wed. and you can make your own!) My preschooler would roll the cube and whatever number was on top, that was the number of cupcakes she had to feed the cat. Both my 4 yr. old and 2yr. old loved to feed the cat!

edcubes

Our family has been enjoying our photo blocks and our membership to Education Cubes so I’ve decided to host a giveaway! Mama Jenn, the creator of Education Cubes, has agreed to give one lucky reader a membership to Education Cubes!

If we were to win, I'd choose to used the money cards first as that is what we're getting ready to learn in our homeschool!

I just started using the Raising Rock Stars Preschool cirriculum from 1+1+1=1 and mama Jenn made some inserts to go along with it. Would love to have that. I also love that the printables can be used for more than one child at different age levels at the same time because they are so versatile.
I would love to win, thanks for the opportunity.

I am going to use the Money set first with a group of preschoolers. The cube with have 4 pennies, 1 dime and 1 nickel on the 6 sides. The children will move that many spaces on a human gameboard. (Penny moves one space, nickel=5, dime=10).
