I’m excited today to share my thoughts on another great 2012 product from my favorite school supply company Learning Resources. The particular product is called the Letter Construction Activity Set which is recommended for children ages 3-7 years old. I’ve been using this set with both my 4 year old and my 1 1/2 year old and am liking it for many reasons in which I’ll specify below.
The Letter Construction Activity Set is like no other that I’ve seen on the market. This set comes with 88 large child friendly plastic pieces that can be easily snapped together to make every letter of the alphabet both upper and lowercase! The colorful pieces store easily snapping into each other and makes for keeping things tidy in the classroom without any worry of lost parts. The number of pieces makes this set large enough to use with four children at one time and that’s a great bonus in any classroom.
The set also comes with 13 double sided activity cards which instruct children in which way they can create the letters showing what pieces and how the finished letter should look. There is also a great many suggest activities in which you can do in your classroom with your students such as Letter Matching ( matching the uppercase letter with the lower case), Beyond Letters ( an activity that encourages children construct something other than letters with the pieces), and so on.
My daughter sat for one day discovering and learning how she could make letters but she wasn’t just limited and went on to even making a few numbers and then hearts and flowers! At first she had a little trouble taking the pieces apart but within 10-15 minutes of using these she has had no issues at all.
The possibilities are endless with the Letter Construction Activity Set! It is great for brain stimulation, developing fine motor skills, problem solving, letter recognition, and pre-writing skills. Even my 1 1/2 year old son was getting on in the action. He’s learning his alphabet now so he was pretty excited to see us building letters and he called out what they were! Pretty soon he’ll be able to build them on his own too with this set!
There’s nothing we don’t love about the Letter Construction Activity Set from Learning Resources, in fact, we highly recommend it! It’s durable, long lasting, and sure to be loved by any child and by any teacher looking out for the best interest of their students.
You can purchase the Letter Construction Activity Set for $39.99 on the Learning Resource Website.
