3.0 out of 5 stars Magnetic letters, 29 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have a set of plastic letters which are wearing out. I bought these as a replacement. The vowels are blue and the consonants red, which is the opposite of the set I already have. 'Y' is both red and blue - great! I like the 'flick' on the 'd's and 'q's - they are helpful with children who confuse d \ b and p \ q - and the 'h's, 'l's, 'm's and'n's. There are also vowel combinations e.g.'ee' 'ea' etc but I'm not a fan of these. Could do with a smaller 'f' and more 's', 'g' and 'l'. There are lots of letters in the tub, but I prefer my old set, so these will go to my grand-daughter when she's old enough.

How To Talk So Kids Will Listen and Listen So Kids Will Talk
How To Talk So Kids Will Listen and Listen So Kids Will Talk

5.0 out of 5 stars How to talk to children, 29 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book sets out ways to talk to children so that everyone is happy. Lots of examples, some exercises to try and thought-provoking scenarios e.g. replacing comparisons, sarcasm, commands, blaming, accusing, warnings, threats, moralising, name-calling and prophecy with 5 skills which create a climate of respect in which co-operation will grow. Wish I'd known about it when my children were young. Works between adults too.

These do the job, but they are very stiff and have sharp edges - watch out when putting them together. The packaging was a HUGE box - not really necessary. I'd have just wrapped them in brown paper. . . .

It arrived quickly in 2 days. I love it because it's so soft and fills the gap between 2 pillows on a king size bed. It shakes back into shape quickly and easily. Well worth the money. Bought the case from Dunelm.

5.0 out of 5 stars sum swamp, 14 Oct. 2009
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This is one of the best games for early years / SEN maths. I have been using it for over 10 years. The children love the creatures and the fact that 'Miss' often loses! It teaches / reinforces many things: odds / evens; count on / count back; + / -; which number comes first in a minus sum; prediction ~ will 'Miss' get to the short cut before they do; estimating how many you need to finish - exact number or not? how to lose, when 'Miss' eventually wins a game; taking turns; all good fun. Well worth the money.
