Flashcards: Little Boards Read and Write
Reading and writing is always more fun with a whiteboard!
This innovative writing kit gently introduces children to tracing letters by starting them off with fun pictures to trace! Then each of the flashcards show two letters of the alphabet on one side, each with corresponding pictures for words that begin with those letters; the reverse side shows each word spelled out in dashed lines for tracing, and again with the corresponding picture, very small. Children can practise writing by tracing the words using the dry wipe pen!
