Clever Chimps Phonics Set196657
Normal price £21.85
This set comprises 4 soft fabric chimpanzees and 98 individual letters and graphemes. Each letter or grapheme is printed on a 38mm square or 38 x 50mm rectangle of EVA foam, with both hook and loop fixings on the reverse. Each chimp (115mm high approx) is designed with 3 fixing points (one on each extended arm and one on the tummy) to hold the tiles in a line. They encourage children to segment words and then select the appropriate graphemes and physically place the tiles to make the required words. Used singly the chimps are ideal for words requiring 3 tiles. Alternatively the chimps can join hands to allow longer words to be formed. The hook and loop strips enable the tiles to be used on other loop nylon surfaces as well as on the chimps. The tiles can also be used on a table top. The pack comprises two sets of the alphabet, eight additional tiles two each with a, e, i and o and the following graphemes:- sh, ch, ck, ff, ll, ss, zz, qu, th, ng, ai, ee, ie, oa, or, ar, ir, oi, au, ay, ea, oe, ew, ue, oy, ow, er, oo, ur, aw, gh, ou, wh, ed, igh, air, ear, ure. Additional visual materials can be attached to the chimps by using loop dots.
