As educators, we know that students need to be exposed to phonics in a variety of manners to fully internalize each letter sound. This product has been a life saver for my early learners.
These letter tiles can be printed on cardstock, laminated, and a magnetic button can be placed on the back to create an easy and versatile manipulative for whole and small group phonics instruction.
We start the year off by allowing the students to create motions to go along with each sound. This is essential to incorporating kinesthetic learning along with traditional auditory and visual instruction.
Personally, I use these each morning to review the weekly spelling patterns. My students look forward to spelling time each day and I hope it will have the same effect in your own classroom.
