To use the Rubik’s cube to teach numbers, simply paste number labels ( I got these @ $1.50 from Popular) or write the numbers with a permanent marker on the cube.
1. Teach Number Recognition and Arranging Numbers
You can ask your child to point to the number you called out, for number recognition
Or you can ask your child to arrange the numbers from the smallest to the biggest (& vice versa) by rearranging the numbers shown on the face of the cube.
Keep practicing by turning the Rubik’s cube for another set of numbers!
2. Teach Shapes
For this, I used the permanent marker to draw the different shapes on the cube.
Then I created a simple activity sheet to note down the number of shapes that can be seen on the face of the cube.
Turn the cube and you will have another round of shape recognition for practice!
