Help kids master letter sounds and build a solid foundation for literacy with this extraordinary wooden play set! The possibilities for learning are unlimited-but the activity itself is simple: place a letter sound in one of the play board wells and fill the others with pictures of words that contain the sound. Three wooden play boards (one for beginning sounds, one for ending sounds, and one for middle sounds) set the stage for learning, with four recessed wells to fill on each board. But the real stars of the show are the 40 rectangular picture tiles and 31 puzzle-shaped letter-sounds tiles-shaped to fit the wells and guide letter-sounds learning, they're wonderful manipulatives for finding relationships between familiar words and letter sounds. Each tile is filled with information, so kids can discover how to say each sound and which words contain it; begin to read the words or just rely on the clear, cheerful illustrations to encourage vocabulary and speech. The set was developed in consultation with education experts and includes helpful teaching tips for caregivers, as well as helpful hints on tailoring game play to any age. It's an ideal launching pad for parent-child or teacher-child discussion of phonics and spelling!
