Magnetic Letters



Magnetic letters are great for kids to play with.  Kids of all ages can benefit from using them.  Younger kids can learn their letters by finding matching letters together while older kids can start forming words.  Many kids learn best by touching and doing.  It’s a great hands on activity.  Ashlyn plays with them in room time.  I have her spell out her sight words or names of people in the family.  I use a cookie sheet for her to spell the words on because they are magnetic. 

While these are a great learning activity, they are a pain to store.  When I was teaching I found that a tackle box was perfect for this.  They have 24 little square compartments so I combine the letters w and x together and y and z.  it’s much better than stuffing them all in a ziploc bag.

    I have a post on my blog about organizing magnetic letters too. I do it the same way as you. http://beginningreadinghelp.blogspot.com/2010/05/magnetic-letters-can-be-organized-and.html

    I’m thinking of doing a post soon with links to other bloggers who share ways to teach with magnetic letters. I’ll add a link to this post and give you credit. I’m very tired tonight. I’ll be back to check out your blog more soon.
