Leapfrog Fridge Phonics Magnetic Set - Lower Case
Leapfrog Fridge Phonics Magnetic Set - Lower Case

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank you so much, 19 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was devastated when our original fridge phonics set died and I discovered that they were not made any more. Mine had lasted 10yrs and been in constant use by various children. So finding a 2nd hand set that I could buy was a huge relief and the children are very happy.
They start off by loving pressing and hearing the sounds, then learning to slot in the letters into the unit, singing the jingles and recognising the letters and sounds.
The only downside is you may get tired of it before they do, but they are learning their letter sounds!!

2.0 out of 5 stars shame about the size, 19 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really like Numicon and use it for Pre-schoolers some of whom can count beyond 10. we have the zig zag book for 0 to 10 and it is ideal. I was hoping for 0-20 or 10-20 in the same size, but these are so small we can barely read them. The table top they are designed for must be tiny. They are really not suitable for what I want. I would love a set that are the same size as the zigzag book

This has enabled me to use our numicon for several children at the same time. It is what it is.

1.0 out of 5 stars what a moany book and what a rotten time the author seems to have had!, 19 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Perhaps I had misread the book. I was hoping for a humorous look at the pitfalls of starting as a staff nurse, instead I felt I was reading the journal of someone who had had an awful time and was possibly in the wrong career or had just had the unfortunate set of circumstances that had surrounded them with truly awful people. I love Nursing but if I had read this book first, I think I would have trained as a lab technician to keep me as far away from a ward situation as possible!!!

I am using this at home with a variety of ages, the babies like the shapes and colours of the big pieces as do the 1's, the 2, 3 and 4yr olds like putting the pieces on baseboards with increasing ease, and beginning to fit them together and copying the shapes on the overlays and making their own patterns. Hoping to move onto number bonds soon.This big box means that several children can play together, making it a lovely social activity too. You do need to buy enough baseboards and overlays and some activity instructions would have been nice.
would recommend for childminders and home educators

Have always been impressed with Florence Nightingale. She may not have really understood how infection spreads or modern infection control that we know, but she certainly knew about looking after people who are unwell and has some very sound advice which can still be used today.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a fantastic book, 19 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What a fantastic book. Considering it was written in 1800's it describes all the elements of modern theories and practice in child management!! Why have I never heard of this author? It includes being calm and quiet when dealing with behaviour you don't want, social stories, time out, training and encouraging children to take responsibility for their choices, appropriate consequences, putting things in a way that children understand, maintaining parental authority without alienating the children, helping children learn to think through their actions and the potential consequences, It gives examples of do and don'ts with behaviour management.
Obviously being written several centuries ago it is a bit wordy compared to modern texts but well worth reading and persevering with.
