The Little Wise Box of Phonics is a magnetic educational and learning toy offering a fun and interactive way for 3-6 year olds to learn how to read. It follows the evidence based synthetic phonics method. This is a method of teaching children how to read by learning the letter sounds. These letter sounds are then blended together to achieve the full pronunciation of whole words. One of the many great things about this method is that, once children have learnt their letter sounds, they are able to work out the pronunciation of new words for themselves.
The Little Wise Box of Phonics activity book walks through all of the steps involved in learning how to read in a really easy and accessible way. So, as a parent or carer, you do not need to have any expertise in phonics to be able to use the kit. There is also plenty of opportunity for interactivity where children can implement the many suggested examples in their phonics toy with their magnetic word tablet and ninety magnetic letter tabs.
Parents frequently describe the Little Wise Box of Phonics as the perfect bridge between early years settings/early school and home when it comes to helping their kids learn to read.
