Product Description

CUBES is a popular and effective mnemonic to help children recall the steps necessary to complete math story problems successfully. 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.

  • Math learners
  • 2nd Graders, (7 to 8-year-olds)
