This 26-piece wooden puzzle pronounces the correct name of each letter when it is placed correctly in the puzzle board! Pieces are slightly raised above the puzzle board for easy grasping. Colorful pictures underneath each piece help reinforce the relationship between letters and their sounds. (TIP: Puzzle has light-activated sensors; for best results, expose a sensor by removing pieces in a brightly lit room, then make the sound play by replacing the piece in the board.)
FIX IT: Place pieces in alphabetical order except for a few letters. Ask kids to “fix” the alphabet.
HOW MANY WORDS: Have kids pick a piece then think of as many words as they can that start with that letter.
SPELL IT: Sing the alphabet song, stopping every few letters. Have kids place the letter in the puzzle that comes next.
