If your children love building blocks then they are sure to enjoy this hands on, colour coded activity! Why not use it to make homework spellings more fun?
This package includes 72 tiles (all of the sounds in phases 2, 3a, 3b, 5a and 5b) base strips and more than 300 PDF (digital) flashcards. You will need to either print these or leave them on the screen. There is a book in our store for £8.99 if you would prefer a physical copy of the cards (there are 151 pages of cards).
Colour coding has been proven to help children with Dyslexia and active methods of teaching are always better than passive.
The children must simply look at the colours of the letters on the flash cards and find the corresponding tiles to build the words on the silicone strips. They can then trace over the word on the flash card with a pen or pencil.
Why not add a whiteboard and pen too?
WHAT WE LEARN WITH PLEASURE WE NEVER FORGET.
These small, 1.6cm squared tiles should not be used with children under 3 years old. The base and tiles are compatible with the major brands and help to develop a good pincer grasp, fine motor skills and muscles in the hands, all of these skills are required for handwriting and this is all good practise for those little hands.
