A to Z Magnatab is the ideal tool to help your preschooler develop fine motor skills. Your child will eagerly trace each letter with the magnetic stylus to see and hear the little metal balls snap to the surface to make the letter.
Then, to further help him develop a feel for each letter, lightly trace over the letters with the tip of a finger, and the metal balls clatter back into the A to Z Magnatab base. One tool, two approaches to strengthen young children’s fine motor skills.
Using A to Z Magnatab will probably not teach your child how to form letters correctly. Our experience has been that most preschoolers are so excited with the immediate feedback of the metal balls snapping to the surface that correctly forming each letter would impede that joy. However, our handbook for the Preschool Kit has ideas on how to use the A to Z Magnatab successfully for prewriting skills.
Use Magnatab twice a week for short exercises. The Timberdoodle Preschool Handbook has a couple ideas to get you started.
Email us if you purchased A to Z Magnatab from us, did not receive a handbook, but would still like that information.
Kids writing their first letters will get helpful up, down, and sideways instructions via the easy to follow arrows. A magnetic stylus pulls the beads up to create solid lines, and erases with the tip of a finger.
