Letter T was one of the first letters Logi-Bear could recognize. He loved the T-Rex and one day he just pointed at the word and said ‘T-Rex’. I was blown away. Of course, he just saw the T and made an assumption, but he was right on that one. In fact, t, r, e, and x were probably his first four letters. It’s amazing what motivation does for learning!
Continuing on our quest to highlight many different ways and tools for dot marker pages, today we use Linking Cubes (aka Unifex Cubes). We didn’t buy ours off Amazon and there are tons of options, so I’ve highlighted a few. I’m sure they’re all great quality, so go for price point. (Or look at garage sales and teacher sales as I see them in those locations often!)
We use the linking cubes in math quite often, but they’re great here too. They are such a wonderful size for little hands but they’re bulky enough that they don’t fly away when someone breathes.
We use them just like other manipulatives on dot markers. Linking cube marks the spot!
They were the perfect size for making the letters though. And what’s more, you could actually link them together on the page to make a 3-D letter.
