Can Do Cubes wishes everyone what they wish themselves for Christmas and 2015.

Debbie Hepplewhite (Phonics International) and Laurie Fyke (Jolly Phonics ProfessionalTrainer; Educational Writer) recommend that our Stage One and StageTwo student trays should also be used as brilliant multisensory complements to other, genuine synthetic phonics programmes (eg. Phonics International; Jolly Phonics).

From Canada – Nancy Kondrat shot this video of the cubes with her iphone:

Can Do Cubes for synthetic phonics uses a pre-cursive font as standard. However, versions are now available using print (ball and stick) font. If this is your preferred version, please specify ‘PRINT’ when making payment through this website or when placing an order by fax or email.

If North America edition required, please specify ‘NA’ when you making payment through this website or when you place your order.


Brand new PRINT edition is now available for users in North America. UK edition will be available soon.
