FREEBIE! Foam Cube Literacy Centers


Math manipulatives aren't just for math anymore!  (I have to give a shout out to my co-teacher, Joy, for starting the craze!)  They work quite well as pieces for reading center activities.  As you can see in the picture, I used Unifix cubes to make this center activity.   They hold the letters to create a  picture to beginning sound match.   I purchased a set of foam cubes at Dollar Tree today.  I plan on using those to make the other sets.   

There are several activities in this set:  letter to beginning sound match, upper- to lowercase match, and 5 CVC sets (one for each of the vowels).  They are soooo easy to assemble!  Just print, laminate, cut, and tape to the cubes and you have an easy yet effective center activity.  Plus, the CVC sets have lines for students to write each word they spelled.  

You can download this FREEBIE set by clicking on the picture below.  I hope your students enjoy them!  


Happy teaching!

  1. Wow! I'm liking this! How do they actually play the game? Do they roll the cubes like rolling dice?

  2. It's more of a center activity instead of a game. For example, the student matches each letter with the object that begins with that letter sound. Or, she uses the cubes to spell 5 CVC words then writes each word. I hope your students enjoy these!

  3. Oh okay--- so they just choose a cube that has a letter on it and then match it to the correct picture/letter in the paper/workmat?

  5. Thanks for this freebie!!!!! I bought 1 package many moons ago and struck gold 3 months ago when they had a shelf full. Being the teacher I am, I bought all they had! This is a perfect addition to my plans for them.

  9. You can also use Mod Podge to adhere the letter to the cube. I used it to change large foam dice into a place value game. Would probably hold up longer. Thanks for the freebie!
