With Aeryn soon in Reception, I have been trying to get her to form letters. She knows how to do a few but she she soon tires of writing and prefers to scribble. Having said that, I don’t really push her as I feel that she is still too young.
We were approached with an opportunity to review the Kid O Upper Case A-Z Magnatab from Great Gizmos and I felt this would be ideal for her. It is.
The Magnatab allows little ones to learn formation of letters the easy way. All one needs do is use the magnetic pen to form the letters and then see the beads make out the letter. To start over again just run your fingers along the letter and see the beads disappear, then beginning writing again.
There is also storage space for the pen.
I love this concept. It’s great for little ones learning to write.
