This first of its kind learning aid from Toykraft provides the foundation stone to learning spelling by associating with how the word sounds. Children will associate spelling with phonics during puzzle play.
Fun, interesting and appealing….each sound ‘blend’ called phonic is revealed on a vehicle board. There are as many as 10 chunky vehicle boards. In the driver’s seat of each vehicle is a child is seen who is displaying the word sounds in the form of a banner of the word blend or digraph. These are the blends - gr, cr, fl, bl, tr, dr, pl and the digraphs - ch, wh, sh.
The child has to identify the jigsaw puzzle pieces which match this sound blend (4 in all for each blend). Having done so, it also looks for their matches to complete the picture of the word having the same sound blend. Having done so it inserts the 4 puzzle pairs in the 4 empty slots in the vehicle. The child then completes other word blends on the vehicles with puzzle pairs for each blend and inserts them in the empty slots of these vehicles.
This Toykraft puzzle offering can be solved in an alternate play mode. Here the child will try to form pictures with a pair of jigsaw pieces. Two-piece jigsaw puzzle pairs (80 self-correcting jigsaw pieces) are joined to reveal 40 pictures with the word spelling. The child has to sort these pairs according to the word blend. There are in all 10 word blends ( 10 phonics ) comprising of 4 puzzle pairs.
For each sound corresponding to the vehicle the child will practice pronouncing all the words - some of which may be new to the child. By regular play with this Toykraft puzzle set. the child would have become accustomed to the spelling and can associate the same with the sound. With some children, whose word vocabulary is good - they can extend the learning with more play possibilities
