There Is So Much You Can Do with Can Do Cubes



I love, love, love practical, hands-on tools for literacy and learning and appreciate them even more when they are solidly made with beautiful natural materials. Thus, I was delighted by the opportunity to review Can Do Cubes from jollyliteracy.com (just2ducks LLC).
 
What Comes in a Can Do Cubes Package?





I was thrilled when my Can Do Cubes arrived, and I realized how well packaged the cubes are and just how many helpful goodies came with them.  In one sturdy cardboard box, I found:


  • 1 Tray of 27 Cubes in Stage 1 which present the simple alphabetic code:  These finely polished, laser-engraved, 1-inch wooden blocks contain one spelling for each of the 44 different sounds that make up the English language.  Six number one cubes include the letters t, p, s, n, i, and a.  Three number two contain c, c, ck, e, h, and r.  Three number three contain m, d, g, o, u, and l.  Three number four contain f, b, ai, j, oa, and ie. Three number five cube contain ee, or, z, w, ng, and nk.  Three number six cubes contain v, oo, y, x, ch, and sh. Three number seven cubes contain th, qu, ou, oi, ue, and er,.  And, three number eight cubes contain ar, ve, se, ce, ge, and y.  As children learn the sounds on each numbered set of cubes, they quickly begin reading and writing a growing number of words using a synthetic phonics approach.  (Synthetic phonics is basically learning to decode and encode words using the smallest sounds a word can be broken into.  So, for example: th-a-t as opposed to t-h-a-t and c-oa-t as opposed to c-o-a-t).

     
     
  • 1 Tray of 30 Cubes plus 2 cubes connected with a string to represent split digraph sounds in Stage 2 which present the more complex alphabetic code:  These cubes show variations of the 44 different spelling sounds, capital letters, double letters, punctuation, and split digraph cubes.  Twenty blocks containing spelling variations have one sound per block.  (See the middle block a the beginning of the video above to see how that works.) There are also blocks with double letters (ss, ff, mm, ll, rr, zz, ertc.), blocks with the capital letters, punctuation blocks and blocks connected with string to use for split vowel digraphs (a-e, e-e, i-e, o-e, and u-e).
  • Two Handbooks (one for Stage 1 and one for Stage 2):  These small spiral-bound booklets are chock-full of great information, that take parents through how to use Can Do Cubes with those who are not yet reading, those learning the alphabetic code,  and those that are ready for more advanced phonetic learning including vowel phonemes, split digraphs, consonant phonemes, double consonants, capital letters and punctuation.  A wide variety of games and activities are included, as are plenty of examples, which makes using the cubes easy and effective.
  • a DVD with an Interactive Demonstration for Sounding Out Letter/Sounds Presented by Debbie Hepplewhite, who is a synthetic phonics consultant:  This DVD also offers segments demonstrating how to teach using Can Do Cubes, explaining why synthetic phonics work, and more.  Plus, if you pop it into a computer, you can access PDF files of handbooks and charts in case your paper copies get lost or ruined. 


  • Three Wall Charts:  Two are At-a-Glance Word Charts for Stage One cubes which offer new phoneme/words to be presented and show which cubes will be used with each new set of phonemes and one is a Synthetic Phonics Overview Chart, which contains phonemes that are heard, the simple code for the sound, and the complex code graphemes used for that sound.  
  • A CD of the Teacher’s Guide and Template Book:  The CD contains a complete workbook in pdf format with teaching instructions for Phonological Awareness, Phonemic Awareness, the Alphabetic Principle, Blending, Segmenting,Dictation, Handwriting, and High Frequency Words.




Better still, because the box was not too large, I was able to easily carry all the materials from our learning shelves, to other rooms in our home, to blankets outside, to our minivan, and even into waiting areas at appointments, so my children and I could use our Can Do Cubes wherever we happened to be going.  For me - someone for whom "home"schooling may be a misnomer - this was an unexpected bonus. 

Most multi-part, hands-on tools get cumbersome to carry about and keep organized, and, so, they get relegated to home use only.  The fact that Can Do Cubes are packaged so conveniently allowed me to keep them on hand sometimes even when we were out and about this summer.  Hoorah!


How Did We Use Our Cubes?


The beauty of Can Do Cubes is that they can be used in so many ways.  They are designed to be used seamlessly with the Jolly Phonics and Jolly Grammar curriculum that I reviewed the other day, but also can be used equally well as an independent literacy tool or as a complement to almost any phonics program, spelling curriculum, or early literacy efforts.



The first time one of my children and I used our Can Do Cubes, we simply explored them as a stand-alone tool.  I had brought them along with us on a day when one child was at summer camp and another child ended up hurting her leg and, thus, needed to hang with me inside.  So, we pulled up some floor space at a visitor center and simply explored the cubes - reading and spelling simple words with them.
After that, my youngest and middle child sometimes used the cubes in conjunction with Jolly Phonics and Jolly Grammar lessons.  All three of my children and I also used our Can Do Cubes for a variety of games. And, my children used them independently to work on spelling.





All of us appreciated how well-made the blocks are - smooth and sturdy, feeling good in our hands - and how easy they make segmenting and blending sounds.  The video below gives an idea of how this works.


 



Why I'd Recommend Can Do Cubes


Jolly Phonics and Jolly Grammar Review
 
I truly appreciate the thought that went into designing Can Do Cubes and am excited to continue enjoying them with my children's phonics, spelling, reading, and writing work.  I also know that our Can Do Cubes will be finding their way into my tutoring bag as so many struggling learners that I work with appreciate concrete tools for kinesthetic learning. 

It's amazing how beautifully made synthetic phonics blocks can energize learning.




Can Do Cubes are simple, yet engaging - perfect for tactile learners since the engraved letters can be felt.  They also work well for kinesthetic learners, who will enjoy manipulating the blocks to segment and blend.

Because the cubes are made of polished wood (as opposed to obnoxiously colored plastic), they would work well in Montessori-inspired homeschools and classrooms.  



Because Can Do Cubes focus on synthetic phonics, they are, in my opinion, so much more helpful than typical movable alphabets, magnetic letters, etc.  They can truly help developing readers and spellers unlock improved literacy skills.  I am witnessing that happen in our home as I weave the use of Can Do Cubes in with our other literacy endeavors - and even our catechism ones.  (Note the word in the image above, which was spelled after we had been doing some First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion Prep.  He was so proud of making a four letter word all by himself without anyone giving a suggested word to spell.)

How Have We Been Slipping in Phonics, Handwriting, Copywork, and Grammar?



For my children and me, flexibility is key and that is why I have appreciated the ease of reviewing Jolly Phonics and Jolly Grammar by
jollyliteracy.com (just2ducks LLC) over the past six weeks or so.  With brief lessons and multiple components to choose from, Jolly Phonics and Jolly Grammar have offered two of my children a fast and simple way to slip phonics, handwriting, copywork, and grammar into 1:1 lessons with Mom.

What's Included in Jolly Phonics and Jolly Grammar 1?



In Jolly Phonics and Jolly Grammar 1, children at a pre-k through first grade level learn phonics, grammar, spelling and punctuation through a multi-sensory approach that continues on with additional programs (Jolly Grammar 2-6) which can carry a child straight through to middle school learning.

Since the program materials are colorful, engaging, and easy-to-use,
Jolly Phonics and Jolly Grammar 1 can also hold appeal for children a bit older than pre-k through first grade age, as they did in our home, providing a way to review and solidify literacy skills.

Jolly Phonics and Jolly Grammar Review

The Jolly Phonics Teacher’s Book in print letters is a 184-page soft-cover, full-color manual that accompanies the Jolly Phonics Student Books 1, 2, and 3.  It begins with a section that explains the Jolly Phonics program and teaching method and, then, carries on with step-by-step instructions for teaching lessons using the Student books, including brief stories to tell children to help them hear, practice, and remember the 42 sounds of English

Color-coded with miniature views of the student pages, the Teacher's Book is simple to follow and makes using the 
Jolly Phonics Student Books 1, 2, and 3 easy.

 

Jolly Phonics and Jolly Grammar Review

The Jolly Phonics Student Books 1, 2, and 3
are thin, 48-page, soft-covered, full-color workbooks that students use when learning:


 
  • what each of the 42 letter sounds are
  • how to form them 
  • how to blend them for reading 
  • how to segment sounds in words for writing 
  • and how to spell.

Each contains traditional worksheet activities such as coloring, matching, tracing letters, filling in blanks, etc.  However, they also contain keys for remembering sounds through kinesthetic learning that is reinforced through Jolly Songs (which I will talk about shortly.)

The workbooks also introduce
tricky words and alternative spellings of vowels, thereby offering children comprehensive practice which encourages them to independently read and write.

In Student Book 1, the sounds of the alphabet and digraph sounds are taught in an order that has students reading words almost right away.  Call out boxes on workbook pages teach actions to help students remember sounds and handwriting exercises get children writing.  Listening for letter sounds, blending sounds, and beginning to learn tricky words are all included in this portion of the program.

In Student Book 2, children build on knowledge from Student Book 1, learning capital letters, tricky words, and basic sentence structures though such activities as guided writing exercises.
 

In Student Book 3, short and long vowel sounds, new spelling patterns,  and more tricky words are introduced, as are some independent writing exercises.
Jolly Phonics and Jolly Grammar Review

Jolly Songs
is a 24-page, full-color, illustrates paperback that comes with a song CD.  It includes a collection of songs set to familiar tunes for each of the 42 letter sounds.  It also contains games, activities, and more.  To be honest, we did not use this part of the program much, because, although two of my three children enjoy music with lyrics, the songs seemed a bit "young" for all of them.  However, as a former classroom teacher and tutor as well as a homeschool mom, I can say that the songs are cute and clever at times and could be helpful for certain students.

Jolly Phonics and Jolly Grammar Review

Jolly Grammar 1 Teacher’s Book in print letters
is a 104-page, soft-cover, full-color guide that is formatted much like the Jolly Phonics Teacher's Book.  It includes and introduction section that explains how to teach the program along with ideas to help you work with your child.  It then continues with structured lessons that correspond to activity pages in the Grammar 1 Student Book.  Included in these are child-friendly descriptions of grammar points and clear instructions for teaching one spelling and one grammar lesson per week.

Jolly Phonics and Jolly Grammar Review

The
Jolly Grammar 1 Student Book  is an 80-page, full-color, soft-cover book that is designed to follow Jolly Phonics and to introduce grammar and spelling rules to improve writing and reading comprehension.  It contains:
  • rules behind alternative spellings
  • short and long vowels
  • compound words
  • plural endings
  • alphabetical order
  • parts of speech 
  • verb tenses 
  • antonyms and synonyms 
  • sentence structure
  • punctuation

and more.

The back of the workbook has space for spelling word tests.


How Can All That Offer Flexibility?


Of course, Jolly Phonics and Jolly Grammar are written as comprehensive programs to be used in full in consecutive order by pre-k through first graders.  However, they also work well taken a bit piece meal with at-grade-level and older remedial learners.  I used them in this way.





Basically, I tucked Jolly Phonics 1 and the accompanying Teacher's Guide into my six-year-old's 1:1 reading-and-writing time bag.  Then, several times a week during our 1:1 times, after reading 2-3 familiar picture books and introducing one new one, I pulled Jolly Phonics out to key into phonics review, and, more importantly for my six-year-old, handwriting. 

To date, he has not relished many handwriting and copywork exercises, but there has been something about the Jolly Phonics pages that has ignited his desire to form more beautiful letters.  We do not copy every dotted letter on the Student Book pages, nor write every free-hand one, but work until my son has formed at least one beautiful letter.  Then, we read the word list and listen for key sounds, crossing out pictures of words that do not contain the sounds.

I like that the key sounds are not contained at the beginning of pictured words only.  Sometimes they come in the middle or at the end.  This keeps my son on his toes and helps him listen and segment more carefully.


With my nine-year-old, my approach is similar.  I tucked Jolly Grammar 1 and its Teacher's Book into her 1:1 time bag and some days, after reading 2-3 familiar picture books, writing freely in a short question and answer response journal, and introducing a new picture book, we do a page of the Grammar Book, working on spelling or grammar.  Sometimes, if my youngest's 1:1 bag is nearby, though, we browse the Jolly Phonics book, too, reading as many of the word lists in it as we can in 3-5 minutes (to help me diagnose which phonemes and phonograms my daughter is still struggling with.)

Never have I done a full lesson as written in the Teacher's Guides of Jolly Phonics and Jolly Grammar with my children, but often have I slipped in 5-15 minutes segments of lessons, helping my children review and solidify their phonics and grammar knowledge without tedium.  I so appreciate how easy it is to do this with the slim, well-organized, and colorful student and teacher books.

Using the programs in a flexible, short-snippets way works for us well right now.   I intend to continue keeping the student and teacher's books in our 1:1 bag repertoire.  I can also see how the program could be beneficial used "as directed" for other families.  It is comprehensive and well-written.

What Do the Children Think?


When I asked my six-year-old about Jolly Phonics, he told me:

I like it.  It's easy.  I usually do three pages at a time now with my mummy.

The reading is easy.  I like tracing the letters and making them beautiful.  I like "x"ing out the pictures the best. Sometimes I draw on them instead, like I drew a sun peaking out of the rain instead of "x"ing the rain out on one page.




When I asked my nine-year-old daughter what she thought about Jolly Grammar (and Jolly Phonics, because she uses it, too, sometimes), she said:


It's good.  It's a tiny bit easy.  I've learned some of the stuff already, like "th" and "ck", so it's a review.  Maybe some of the words I did not know before.  Writing some of the dictation is a challenge, but some of it is really easy.



The best thing about it is I have confidence that I can do it.  I don't like the dictation sentences much.  I want to keep using it though because it is easier than some other things and it will strengthen what I know, reviewing things and tossing in a tiny bit more.


When my son, who has been rather writing-reluctant, indicates that he likes writing letters, and my daughter, who is "behind" in English Language Arts and sometimes gets altogether too frustrated and down by the fact that reading does not come naturally for her says, "It's easy," and "I have confidence...", I think, "Hoorah!  Jolly Phonics and Jolly Grammar are helping us meet goals, fill holes, and slip traditional work easily into cozy 1:1 reading-and-writing times.

Paint a Marian Peg Doll



Last fall, creative-but-not-so-crafty me entered into the world of peg doll painting, learning 6 Things NOT to Do for a Peg Doll Swap


http://traininghappyhearts.blogspot.com/2015/11/saint-peg-doll-swap.html

Although there were some sighs of frustration while I painted dolls for that initial swap, the result of having done so continues to bless our family.  My children enjoy playing with our peg doll collection, and I like using the dolls to decorate for feast day celebrations.  So, when a friend asked if I'd like to join a local Marian peg doll swap, I offered a little prayer, referenced my own what NOT to do post, and , then, got started painting a set of Our Lady of Altagracia dolls.


As I progressed with the dolls, I took heed of prior mistakes and things went a lot more smoothly.  In fact, although my Our Lady of Altagracia dolls did not come out as beautifully as those painted by craftier folks might have ended up, I am pleased with how they look and actually enjoyed the experience of designing and creating them.




I also had a lovely time swapping the dolls I painted for those that others created. 




Indeed, as I looked over beautiful table my friend organized for the swap, I thought, "Wow!  I have some talented friends."  Each peg doll was charming and unique.

Want to see them up close?

I made sure to take a front-and-back shot of each set of dolls that came to the party so you could be inspired:




January - Our Lady of Altagracia


February - Our Lady of Good Success



March - The Annunciation

 



April - Our Lady of Good Counsel
(This doll set came late to the party, so I only have a solo shot of the one I received.)


May - Our Lady of Fatima



June - The Immaculate Heart



July - Our Lady of Mt. Carmel



August - Our Lady of Knock


September- Our Lady of Sorrows



October - Our Lady of the Rosary


November - Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal

December - Our Lady of Guadalupe - is still forthcoming, since the mama who is painting it has not able to finish it yet.



Fronts and backs, aren't these Marian peg dolls sweet?



I am delighted to add them to our growing peg doll collection and hope some of their designs might inspire you to pick up a peg and start painting, too!


I'd love to see your peg doll designs? If you've painted some, please share a link or photo.

Learn Spanish The Fast and Fun Way!

 

{Disclaimer:  Because we have been enjoying our time learning Spanish together so much, I have become an affiliate for Foreign Language for Kids.}


I had been planning to revisit a stalled study of Latin with my children this summer and fall, but, when an opportunity to review the Starter Set 1 from Foreign Language for Kids came up, I changed my mind.  As I was checking out the Foreign Language for Kids, one of my children looked over my shoulder and said,"That looks fun.  I want to try it."  So, it was that we decided to take the review.  I am glad we did. 



With three children at different levels and not enough of Mom to go around for 1:1 time in many subjects, I love learning that we can approach as a family.  The homeschool Spanish Starter Set 1 is exactly that kind of thing!
In the set are:


  • a DVD with videos for Levels 1-3 Spanish for kids:  According to the lesson plans, you are to watch small timed segments of the DVD over a number of daily lessons.  We rarely do things daily around here, so, instead, we watched the entire Level 1 portion of the video on Day One and, then, watched it again in its entirety, on other days, too.

    In all honesty, I had planned to watch only the brief timed segment of Level 1's video segment that was suggested in the lesson plans, but the children asked to watch the rest.  They were enjoying it so much - and we had time that day - so I said, "sure," to their request.  With that, our family's precedent was set:  When using the video, we watch an entire level at once, with my children laughing and talking back to the video the entire time.


  • 3 Parent-Teacher Guides:  Each Level of the program comes with its own Teacher Guide that contains detailed lesson plans, a suggested DVD viewing schedule, and a variety of supplemental and hands-on activities to choose from which reinforce material taught in the videos. 

    I almost never follow prescribed lessons to a "T" - not even close - but I do appreciate having them, since they give me a framework from which to personalize my family's approach to a specific resource.  These guides did that beautifully!  Unlike some teacher guides, they are short, thorough, well-organized, and easy-to-navigate.  Thus,
    I could easily find vocabulary lists of Spanish words and their translations; hone in on Geography tie-ins, select games and activities that would appeal to my children to practice key concepts, etc. (In fact, in the photo above, the Level 1 Teacher's Guide is laying open, because, as my children watched the video, I was quickly deciding which activities to try next.)


  • Flashcards and Card Games for Levels 1 to 3:  Picture cards and word cards for each level of the program made it easy to play review games described in the lesson plans as well as to play games we made up ourselves.  The pictures are basically still shots from the DVD's and handy key cards are included to help jog children's and Momma's memories should any of the images not immediately bring key Spanish words, phrases, and sentences to mind.

  • Workbooks for Levels 1-3:  The DVD program is framed as "in-flight movies" while you are on your way to several different Spanish-speaking destinations, and the workbooks, then, become your "in-flight magazines", filled with crosswords, word searches, country information, grammar, facts, and more. Since the workbooks are geared, I'd say, for children at grade levels three and up to complete independently, but my child at that level does not like written work, i opted to use only parts of the workbooks and to use them orally with all three of my children in a "cozy on the couch" situation before or after watching the DVD.  This worked well for us.


  • Stickers for Levels 1-3: Key vocabulary is written big and bold on stickers your children can place around the house to remind them of the Spanish they've been learning.  The stickers are not ones that are easily removed, though, so in our home, we stuck them to sticky notes which the children took turns putting on different objects (and people!) in our home.  They enjoyed doing this (and I enjoyed knowing that stickers could easily be removed that way.)


Teach Spanish in Minutes a Day (Or Longer When the Kids Say "More!")

I truly appreciate learning resources that I can use with all of my children at once, quickly and easily, without worrying about an online subscription or a ton of materials to wade through and keep track of, and that is exactly what
Foreign Language for Kids has been for us!

I keep all of our
Spanish Starter Kit materials on our learning shelves in the mailing envelope they came in.  Then, when we want to use the program, I simply take the envelope down, grab the materials we want to use on that given day, have at it, and return everything to the shelf. 


(Well, that is everything but the stickers the children leave up around our home.)

Then, the next time we want to continue our Spanish studies, we do the same thing -- popping in the DVD, breaking out the vocabulary game cards, referencing the teacher's guides or workbooks, or having the children put stickers on sticky notes and run about our house to place the stickers in relevant places. 

Easy, fun, and flexible,
Foreign Language for Kids is perfect for us, since we can use it for ten minutes on a busy day or much, much longer on other days without any additional prep time and with super-easy clean up.  Indeed, the program, of us, is truly one we an take out of its envelope, learn and enjoy with, and then put back its in the envelope and onto our shelves without fuss.

The Learning Sticks

Another thing that I appreciate about learning Spanish with Foreign Language for Kids is that it provides gentle learning that sticks.  As we've been using the program, it's been fun to have my children pepper our everyday conversations with the Spanish words they've been learning.




The combination of an enjoyable immersion DVD, corresponding game cards and stickers, and an "in-flight magazine" to guide some of our review seems to be "just right" for igniting my children's interest in learning Spanish.  The ease of using these things makes the program an ideal fit for me, too. 
 


What the Children Had to Say



My daughter, at nine, was the one who first asked to try
Foreign Language for Kids, and she was not disappointed!  She said:


It's fun!  I like how it is not how some programs where they use cartoon people.  I like how they use real people.  I also like how it teaches you simple words right from the first lesson and, then, gets more and more difficult, but not too difficult.

On the video, I like how you have to learn by - well, they don't really say what a word means.  They just use it a lot and you figure it out. 

I like with the stickers when I see them on the huevos, for example, I can say, "Can I cook myself some huevos?" (I like eggs!)  Or, I can say, "Can I read libros?" Or, "Can I have some pan?"

I also like the challenges with the cards.


 

When I asked youngest, who turned six while we have been reviewing the program,
what he would rate the program on a scale of 1-5, he said "a 2.5 plus 9/10's".  So, that's a 4.4.  He added that he like the stickers and video and laughed as he said:



The funniest part of the video is when the boy took all the pan and says he was hungry. 

Indeed, all of my children laugh every time they see that portion of the video and pretend to be the boy from the video when we have things they particularly like at mealtimes. They also find ways to integrate words from the Spanish stickers they find around our home into our conversation.  It's so cute.


My oldest, at ten, said:


I really liked the movie, because it was funny.  I don't want to say why, because it will spoil it for others. 

The movie helped me learn by introducing me to words.  Then, I used cards to play games to review the words.  The stickers were fun to put on stuff around the house.  Mom tried to use the in-flight magazine with us, but I do not like writing.  So, we only used it out loud and used the cards, stickers, and movie more.

I think this review was pretty worth it.  I want to do the rest of the lessons.  We only finished the first story "Basketballs Aren't for Breakfasts".  Mom has not let us go on yet, because she wants us to master all the words we are learning first.  I am almost there!  I only have one more to go.

I have no doubt my oldest will have that word mastered before the week is out, because he is eager to move onto the next story: The Little Magic House.  I have to admit, I am, too.  It's fun to use this program with my children and I look forward to doing all three levels of it, as well as any more that may be forthcoming.  (Please Foreign Language for Kids make more levels!)

If You Like Ease and Fun, You'll Like This Introductory Spanish Program


As I already described the Spanish
Starter Set 1 has proven engaging and easy-to-use for my family.  We literally just take it off our shelf, enjoy, learn, put the materials back on the shelf, and, then, add learned Spanish to our conversations until we take the materials back down to learn more. 




(Adding the language is easy, indeed, when we find it around the house!)

I love how no-fuss the experience is.  There is little prep or clean up involved, and the children have yet to grumble once when it is "Spanish time".   I also appreciate that the program components are physical ones.  No online subscription or streaming videos to fuss with, just a DVD, game cards, and slim teacher guides and workbooks.

If you, like me, appreciate learning that can easily be done together with multiple ages of children, you will likely enjoy
Foreign Language for Kids as an introductory Spanish resource.
