Wait! Before you purchase this product, check out the larger version which includes everything here plus tons of additional student practice pages. It can be found here:
Numbers & Numerals 0-10 to Trace, Show, Color, Count, and Build with 3D Posters
These three dimensional posters may be just the right resource for your students with unique learning and processing styles!
You will need interlocking cubes to use this resource. You need the cubes that can connect in multiple directions instead of a single direction. The cubes need to have one surface with a peg. The other five surfaces of the cube need to have holes for connecting. Do NOT attempt to use UNIFEX cubes with this product – it won’t work.
This product gives students an opportunity to work with numerals tactilely by building them! Using interlocking cubes, the students follow the pattern provided on a poster and "build" the numerals. This resource can be used as a "numeral building" center. The center will become a problem solving activity as students count the number of cubes needed to build each side of a numeral. The numeral posters are in greyscale format to minimize ink usage. The photographic posters include numerals 0 through 9.
I recommend that a lesson about interlocking cubes be taught prior to setting up a numeral building center with this resource. A 5E lesson plan for acquainting children with interlocking cubes is included in this product.
