Wikki Stix Alphabet
Wikki Stix Alphabet
Your hands-on preschooler needs a lot of repetition in letter formation before he can recognize and write actual letters. Wikki Stix Alphabet will not only help your child study the mechanics of letter making but will also introduce him to some rudimentary letter/object correlations. On this set of colorful and uncluttered letter cards, your child will just follow the arrows to bend and stick the Wikki Stix, slightly tacky reusable yarn, to trace each upper and lower case letter. Soft and pliable Wikki Stix is a proven tool for tactile, hands-on learning and requires just fingertip pressure to stick. And it is just as easy to peel up and reposition Wikki Stix as needed.
Each Wikki Stix Alphabet card also includes an item that is spelled beginning with the letter being studied (Ant for “A”; Dinosaur for “D”, etc.) that can also be traced with Wikki Stix. Reusable and unbreakable, made simply of yarn and food-grade nontoxic wax, Wikki Stix have been manufactured in the USA for over twenty years. No glue, no preparation, no cleanup, no mess Wikki Stix Alphabet is ideal for quiet times and travel. Wikki Stix Alphabet includes 26 individual cards plus 36 tactile Wikki Stix® to create hands-on educational fun.

I wasn't sure about this one in the beginning, but after using it a few times I can really see what it is doing. She learned the shapes of the letters so quickly that when it came to writing her letters, it came so easy to her. This is a sneaky project where they think they are just playing, but really they are learning to write. Plus it helps with some fine motor skills as well. Win win for the wikki sticks!!!
My pre-K son was getting bored with writing letters and this was a fun alternative!
These are a great way to learn with your hands, which is hard to do when writing letters. By forming the letters with the Stix, my daughter is learning more concretely. She also uses them for arts and crafts time!
We had a set of Wiki Stixx before getting this additional set with the letter cards. My kids enjoyed playing with them and making shapes before. I now can pull them out in school and it gives my pre-K child something to do while I work with my first grade child. Anything that can help her learn her letters and feel like she is playing is a win for me! I do find them to be a bit too waxy and don't like how it feels on my hands after playing with them but my kids don't seem to be bothered by that!
Not enough Wikki Stix to complete the entire alphabet at once-bummer!
Limited educational/play value.
