When children learn to read they often struggle with the odd rules that our wonderful language employs. Phonics has had its ups and downs when it comes to being the method of choice for educators, but this hands-on kit takes phonics and literally puts it in the hands of children no matter what their level of reading. Using interlocking blocks, children build and write words using either the enclosed prompt cards or on their own. We found that kids really loved the hands on experience and were excited about discovering how words could be built and especially how easily they could be rearranged by swapping or exchanging new blocks.
