Two months ago it was difficult to get the children to identify even 1 picture on the Cubes with its English word. Now they are writing sentences using the pictures. Based on their progress (and in conjunction with simultaneously teaching them basic English Grammar) very soon they will be writing stories!
Step1) Give each student in class a Cube
Step 2) Get them to identify the pictures on their Cube with English words (repeat this over several classes so they become familiar with most of the pictures English words, they share their word knowledge with each other freely).
Step 3) Once they become familiar with most of the pictures (takes about 4-5 class sessions by randomly issuing each student a Cube in each class session) give them each a Cube and get them to write a sentence incorporating just one of the pictures word in the sentence I.e I saw a star. This is a house. I eat the apple. etc
Step 4) Next few class sessions get them to write a sentence incorporating at least two of the pictures words. I.e I ate an apple in the house.
Step 5) Once they are all competent writing short sentences get them to use their new Grammar knowledge (adjectives, adverbs, articles, conjunctions, prepositions) to improve their sentences I.e I happily ate a shiny red apple inside the new kitchen in the big old house.
Step 6) Get then to write a story using as many pictures on the Cube as they can and using their Grammar knowledge. Repeat in as many class sessions as necessary until they are proficient in writing stories!

We bought a set a while ago before a camping trip, and these saved the night when it started storming (think hailstorms in May) and we had to stay in the tent all night - we told story after story by flashlight, and had an amazing and memorable time - one of my favorite trips to this day. My fiancee, who I didn't think would care at all about these, likes them even more than I do. As a drama therapist who loves storytelling and narrative, that's saying something! We actually bought ANOTHER SET from amazon for a white elephant christmas gift and they were a HIT there too. We opened them up that night and the last of the partiers in our family had lots of laughs telling stories together in the wee hours of the night.
I bring them on date nights and we tell stories while we wait for our meal, and sometimes the restaurant staff will play with us too.
I bring them to groups and tell stories with kids. I tell stories with adults.
I bring this to bars and play games with friends on the table.
Basically, they're great. Get these IMMEDIATELY, and get to storytelling!
The 7.5 yr old is ADHD and whirling dervish. He begs to have these and for us all to sit down and tell stories. We do and each time he's used them, he's improved in his story telling ability.
And they LOVE it when Nana cuddles them in her lap, shakes the cubes, puts them back into the plastic bin you store them in and tells them stories.
I also LOVE the box they come in. It's a very heavy cardboard and one edge has a magnetic closure. There is also a clear molded plastic container to hold the cubes in place inside the box so that the plastic is OVER the dice, but it's easy to remove them by holding the plastic part with one hand and tipping the box over. Gently lift the box up and you have the dice and can reuse the plastic container. The plastic or the case can be used to hold the dice while you tell a story. And then I replace the dice in the plastic part. Grip it face up and turn the box over to place the plastic back in it - enclosing the dice back in place. The box doesn't open easily when dropped. So you don't have dice flying all over.
I will say, that at present time, the "actions" one is more difficult as the drawings are more detailed. But as the kids play with these, I believe they will be able to use the "action" cubes more easily. I would think that in about 3 months or so of frequent usage, they'll be able to use those cubes as easily as they now use the less detailed sets.
I'll be purchasing more of these story cubes, until we have the whole series!
With all of the different dice variations there are many possibilities. I can't really imagine using this after my kid is older than say 8-years old, but who knows.
The only reason I have given this 4 instead of 5 stars is that one side of one of the dice had a black ink smudge on a face. I contacted the company and they say they will send a replacement, but it's still disturbing that there could have been a defect on something as simple as a dice.
The size of this product is great. It's easy to carry around when you're out and about with your kids. I could see taking these on an airplane to play on the tray, or even breaking them out at a restaurant while waiting for food to arrive.
Solid product, imaginative idea, and great for getting your kids talking instead of staring at a screen!
