A to Z Magnatabs

Larger image
 

A to Z Magnatabs

A fun way to learn writing the letters of the alphabet! As you "write" over the lines with the magnetic stylus, beads are pulled up, making a pleasant "click" sound and creating dotted lines. Once you've "written" all the letters with the magnetic end of the stylus, trace them again with the other end or with your finger to "erase" them by pushing all the beads back down! The sensory reinforcement makes this a fun activity that kids want to repeat again and again. Please note: the directional arrows shown on the board follow a method that teaches letter formation based on the type of lines, i.e. straight, curved and angled. These arrows may or may not match the teaching method that you use. Boards are 12" x 9". Stylus is 4"L. See also the 0 to 9 Magnatab in the Math category.

These two books offer a complete package for building the emergent literacy skills of young children. Together, these highly practical guidebooks help to create continuity between literacy-building activities in the classroom and literacy-building activities in the home.

Written in straightforward language and filled with examples and photos of home situations with which parents can easily identify, I'm Ready! supports parents to extend their child's literacy-learning into every part of the day.
• Both guidebooks contain color photos, concrete examples and helpful "Try it Out" sections at the end of each chapter to guide parents and educators in nurturing these critical building blocks of literacy: vocabulary, story comprehension, abstract language, print knowledge and phonological awareness.
