This activity is a great activity for the first few weeks of school as you are introducing students to various math manipulatives. In this activity, students will first write their first and last name in the blank linking cubes on the worksheet. Then they will use actual linking cubes to cover the letters in their first and last name. Next, they will count the total number of linking cubes it took to cover their first and last name and record it in the appropriate blanks. Finally they will add the total number of linking cubes it takes to cover their first and last name.
I used this activity with my Kindergarten kiddos, but it can definitely be used with PreK and 1st.
