Appealing to children's natural instincts to sort and collect, these tactile pebbles (cast from resin and stone mix) can be used in sand, water and small-world play. They are durable and weatherproof, so are also ideal for using outdoors.
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 Teacher's Notes also include a quick checklist for the pebbles you can use for each phoneme when covering alternative spellings.
