Complete a puzzle, spell a word! See & Spell wooden puzzle set helps familiarize children with letters of the alphabet and their sounds, while developing sight-reading vocabulary. Over 60 wooden letters fit into eight two-sided cut-out boards, each with clear illustrations so kids can "see and spell" the three- and four-letter words. Use the pieces for spelling, stencilling, and learning games, then store them in the compact wooden storage case!
Eight double-sided boards help kids learn to recognize and spell 16 first words. Simply place the letters in the recessed wells to spell the words!
Great for your child's development:
As children work on pre-reading skills, there's so much to learn: letter forms, storytelling, spacing, alignment. . . . This set simplifies the process by focussing on one aspect: word-building: Kids identify a picture, then construct the word that matches, placing letter pieces in the guides. The directed, goal-oriented play helps children achieve spelling successes and celebrate each "win" as they build a sight-word vocabulary and improve fine motor skills.
"My kids love this! Our youngest likes to look at the pictures and learn the words. My middle child is learning her letters, and my oldest boy uses the pieces to practice spelling!"
"I am a former teacher and mother of two and I believe this is a wonderful learning tool for young children. We do the puzzles together and he'll look at my word and tell me, 'Look, Mom, I have a T for you!' The hands-on experience is really helping him learn his letters."

Open wooden tray is included for sorting and organization during play, and neat, stackable storage afterward.
- 8 double-sided wooden boards, with recessed letter wells on each side (16 words in all)
