Explore grammar and usage conventions in a fun, non-threatening way with these colorful word cubes. Sturdy 1 1/4" plastic cubes have a related high frequency word on each of their six sides. The accompanying teaching guide, Sentence Building with Word Cubes, provides step-by-step lesson plans. Children build sentences, then create hundreds of variations just by turning one or more cubes. They can change declarative sentences into interrogative sentences or present tense into past, affirmative into negative, and much more. Especially useful for identifying children with syntax problems or working with second language learners. Each of the six color-coded sets of nine cubes can be used to explore different sentence structures. This exciting new way to work with words will captivate your students and bring them back for more. Includes 54 color-coded cubes, plus teaching guide.
