Beautiful early phonetic puzzle!

This puzzle has been a fan favorite in the classroom lately. I appreciate that they are two-sided so if children aren’t familiar with letters, they can still be successful and proud to put a puzzle together.

Great Learning Tool

We have not truly begun to use this learning tool with my granddaughter. We will start shortly. However, we did review the booklet and the contents and coming from a family well versed in English, communications, reading, and comprehension, I believe this tool will be of great benefit for my grandchild.

Perfect for Literacy Stations

My kiddos loved these new CVC puzzles. They have great words and pictures that are different than a lot of our typical materials from our reading curriculum. Will definitely be purchasing more materials!

Limitless fun

My almost 4 year old loves these puzzles. From the full graphics on the back to the letters with accompanying photos on the other side, he loves assembling each puzzle. He even cracks himself up by trying to mix and match. And I love interacting with him and talking through the creative words and pictures. They’re great learning moments for him, and because they’re so well made, I know we’ll be able to use these with him and his younger brother for years to come.
