Magnetic Letters (Writing)

magnetic letters

A whiteboard with letters of the alphabet along the bottom. Call out a word, get your child to break down (orally segment) the sounds on his/her fingers. Then he/she clicks on the corresponding letters to make the word appear on the whiteboard. Get him/her to sound out and read the word written to check it is correct and amend if necessary. He/she may want to try writing the word in 2 plausible ways eg rain, rane - encourage this, as it is a strategy adults use. Which one looks right?
