Have you ever found yourself “pulling your hair out” because your child will not sit down and work with you?
It can be very frustrating for all parties involved. But it doesn’t have to be!
Children like to have fun while they learn! The trick can be finding things that will keep their attention AND help them learn.
This review will illustrate the pros and cons of one potential educational tool based on my experience as a teacher using similar materials in my classroom with my students.
My Experience with Magnetic Letters
As a teacher I used magnetic letters often!
They were very helpful in giving children the opportunity to interact with alphabet letters in a non-traditional way.
This allowed them to easily use the letters to spell their sight words or the spelling words we were working on. They also used the letters to focus on specific word spellings like i_e or _oy.
This could be a fun way to practice writing and solving math equations, using the foam pieces as well as the whiteboard.
As mentioned, children like to have fun while learning, so anything we can do to provide varying experiences will greatly benefit them.
In my classroom we often used whiteboards for a variety of subjects. My students loved the opportunity to draw, write, or otherwise learn using their own whiteboard and marker.
Our whiteboard use ranged from spelling words to drawing pictures of our writing to solving math problems.
