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 also ideal for using outdoors. Each pebble is engraved with a grapheme and measure 30 – 45mm.
This resource can be used in many ways to support early phonics teaching. A set of Teacher Notes is included in the set with great game ideas for phoneme recognition and moving into blending and segmenting. These activities offer children playful opportunities to practice and apply their new phonic knowledge. There are also suggestions for outdoor activities and for using the pebbles alongside reading to help introduce the focus phoneme.
The set contains 64 pebbles covering the 44 phonemes from Phases Two and Three plus the most common alternative spellings from Phase Five. The Teacher’s Notes also include a quick checklist for the pebbles you can use for each phoneme when covering alternative spellings.
