Phonics Pebbles can be used in many ways to support early phonics teaching. Included in the set are helpful teacher’s notes with great game ideas for phoneme recognition and blending and segmenting. There are also suggestions for outdoor activities and for using the pebbles alongside reading to help introduce the focus phoneme.
Appealing to children’s natural instincts to sort and collect, these tactile pebbles can be used in sand, water and small-world play. They are durable and weatherproof, so are ideal for use outdoors.
Cast from a unique resin and stone mix, each pebble is engraved with a grapheme and measure 30–45mm. Each set contains 64 pebbles covering the 44 phonemes from Phases Two and Three of Letters and Sounds, plus the most common alternative spellings from Phase Five.
Each set comes in a handy storage jar and is suitable for children aged 3+.
