Choices are endless with the letter board! Students can use the letter board to review spelling words, work with a partner to spell words (each partner spells the word one letter at a time taking turns), spell answers to questions, spell vocabulary words when given a definition, etc
These concepts aid the brain in encoding the stroke of each symbol of letters and numbers, letter recognition, letter formation, following words from left to right, focusing on reading for longer periods of time.
