We recommend that you add magnets to the back of these letter tiles so you can use them on a magnetic board.
The phonogram tiles are color-coded for faster learning:
The five heading labels help you group your tiles on the table while you are teaching. Logically grouping the tiles makes them easy to locate during a spelling lesson and aids visual memory.
Each set contains 108 tiles—two each of letters a to z, one each of the remaining letter combinations, and six blank tiles.
Other features and benefits include:

I purchased just the letter tiles for a kinesthetic approach to phonics for my 3 year old who is eager to learn her phonograms but not ready for lots of writing. I'm really pleased with how these tiles reinforce her learning. The quality of the letter tiles is great. The strength of the magnets is perfect for its application on a magnetic board and great for little hands.

Like many preschoolers, my 3-year-old is alphabet-obsessed! I didn't intend to use AAS with her yet, but she was so enthusiastic about the letter tiles and flash cards that I started doing some of the basic AAS activities with her too. She can now arrange the letter tiles in alphabetical order and knows most of the initial letter sounds. We will definitely be continuing this program.

Because of the hands-on nature of All About Spelling, Nicholas is thoroughly enjoying it. He actually says, "Oh, good," when I say it's time for a spelling lesson. He's told me more than once, as we stand at the magnetic dry erase board where we do the lessons, "I like when we do this." I've seen his spelling, and most importantly his understanding of spelling concepts, improve since we started this program.

One of my boys, the one I most hoped this program would help with spelling (and reading), really likes working with the letter tiles! We were doing the step where you have them start with one word, then ask them to change out a letter to make the next word. He had so much fun that he started making up his own progressions. He just kept exchanging tile after tile to make more and more words! It was cool! He is also ADHD/ODD and very much a kinesthetic learner, so anything that gets him having fun and learning is good!

We love All About Spelling, and we especially love the colored tiles. They help cement the spelling of words for my daughter, who just plain hasn't gotten spelling before.

I have long wanted something phonogram-based like this. Our youngest child is at the point where he is making up all kinds of silly, long words and asking what they say. The letter tiles make it so much easier for him to create pronounceable words. And the color-coding of the vowels makes it easier for him to remember to put a vowel in each syllable. These are great! (A nice side benefit is that these phonogram tiles stick to the fridge better. I get so tired of fishing out those plastic letters with their wimpy magnets from under the fridge!)
