Louise Norwood, Head of The Oval Montessori Nursery –
“The alphabet pebbles provide children with an outstanding sensorial experience. Children can hold the pebbles in their hands, trace the letter shape and manipulate them while constructing words. These can be used as an alternative to the small movable alphabet and in conjunction with Montessori picture cards. There are many extensions to this work including making up their own words and then writing them out.”
Heidi Evans, Registered Childminder –
“I initially introduced the pebbles to some children in the woods, as we do a lot of outdoor play/forest school sessions. I put the pebbles on a log and asked the children to look for letters that they could see were in their names. They liked this and thought they were magic stones because they had writing on! They are good value for money as they are robust and will clearly last a very long time and can be used in many different ways.”
Practical Pre-School Awards Tester –
“A very good idea. The children really enjoyed the alphabet pebbles as it gave them the opportunity to spell their name and to try to spell their friends’ names. They also liked testing each other on the letters.”
