Comprehension Cube for Rockin' Readers

I am so excited that we finally have this Comprehension Cube completed and in our Teachers Pay Teachers store! However, I am most excited about being able to use it next year. This is something I have wanted to do for a long time, but you know how that is, twenty other things get in the way first. In my mind, this is going to be so much fun and motivating for the children. We used the soft pocket cubes that you can get from most teaching stores and made our own cards that we can change out to meet the skills we want to review for the story we are reading. The children will roll the cube and then answer the question on the side shown. Some of the questions are: What is the title? Who is the main character? What is the setting? We have also included three different pre-made cubes with the questions for those that may not have the soft cubes. Please visit our store and check out the cubes by clicking on the picture above. Let us know your thoughts. Would you include any other questions?

    1. I found the soft pocket dice a few years ago in my local teaching store. I looked on Lakeshore's website and couldn't find them, but I did find them here: http://www.teachersparadise.com/c/beginning-math-roll-learn-pocket-cubes-p-46866.html
      I love them. You can do so many thing with them. You can buy different cards for the pockets to go with different themes. I have always wanted to use them as comprehension cubes and finally got around to making the cards. :0) I hope you find them.

  4. CREATION--- FAITH & LOGIC BY STEVE FINNELL

    Is accepting as fact that God created the heavens and the earth strictly a faith alone concept? Is it not logical that an intelligent designer had to be involved in the creation process?

    FAITH: Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

    I accept the Genesis account to be true because of faith. Why? Because I trust the Bible to be the infallible word of God.

    LOGIC: Romans 1:20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen , being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse.

    I accept the words in Romans 1:20 not only by faith, but by logic as well. I can see clearly God's hand in creation.

    HOUSE HUNTING : FAITH & LOGICAL

    If you were shopping for a house and you walked into a housing development you had never been to before, and saw a house you wanted to purchase, would you not have to to accept the existence of that house by faith and logic?

    FAITH: Since you did not see anyone build the house, you would have to accept by faith it was built by an intelligent designer. How many years do you think it would take for wood, brick and mortar to evolve into a house?

    Logic: Since the house is in your sight, is it not logical that someone built the house?

    Everyone agrees that billions of years would not be long enough for brick, wood, and mortar to evolve into a house.

    To believe the theory of evolution you not only have to contradict logic, but you have to forsake reason.


    Those who deny that God exists and is the creator of all things, are truly without excuse!


    THE DEFINITION OF FAITH IN THE THEORY OF EVOLUTION: Faith in evolution is to believe that, nothing accidentally created the heavens and the earth over billions of years.
