CUBES is a popular and effective mnemonic to help children recall the steps necessary to complete math story problems successfully. This package includes the following:
- One printable/poster highlighting each CUBES step.
- One printable/poster listing key action words for all four math operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division).
- One handout with CUBES and action words combined.
- Two printable/poster story problem samples demonstrating the CUBES steps in action.
- Twelve math center task cards for students to practice CUBES. - - - - Tasks are incremental. The first set of four tasks are single-step and offer practice in each of the four math operations. The second set are two-step story problems and practice each of the four math operations.
- Four blank task cards for you to write in your own story problems
- Answer key
As a homeschooling mom, I have seen firsthand how effective the CUBES mnemonic is. It has worked wonders for my dyslexic daughter. The CUBES and action words posters can be printed back-to-back and laminated for long durability and ease of use at a math station in the classroom or at desk work.
