DIY Six-Sided Number Chart Review

I haven't been writing about homeschooling very much lately.  Part of the reason I haven't created any new printables or posted about our schooling is that we're still doing a lot of what I've already made over the last few years.  This 100-chart is a perfect example of something I started a few years ago that we weren't ready to use at the time.

Dragonfly is able to count to one-hundred now and is beginning to learn the connections between the numbers.  She's recently been trying to understand even and odd numbers.  Today, we got out our 6-sided number chart and looked at the pattern.

It was a great exercise for Dragonfly to put the numbers together in order.  The colors helped her to see how all the "ones" lined up on one column, all the "fours" in another, and onward.  She did great as you can see from the video below.



To make your own chart, you need about 120 one-inch wood blocks for the numbers 0-100 and the optional "number eater" monster cubes talked about in the original post.  Print the number charts from the blog post and cut them apart a few numbers at a time.  Glue them on the wood blocks with modge podge and seal them with a layer of modge podge on top.  If you chose to make the back and white side magnetic, add a piece of a magnetic sheet on the opposite side of each cube.

The student can put the numbers in order, then turn the sides of the cubes to change the focus of the chart.  The colors can show counting by ones (black and white), twos (grey), threes (greens), fives (browns), and tens (rainbow).

My review of this number chart is that it's well-worth the time to make it.  Dragonfly enjoyed it, and the variety of sides and focuses gives us a lot of learning potential.  I can see this chart being helpful as we move from counting to skip counting and then onto multiplication and division.
