Magnetic Letters - Uppercase Letter Set
Excellent teaching aid.
I Bought these for teaching my grandaughter. The pieces are well made, with two magnets at the back. They are a good size which a 2 yo can handle easily. A lot of other sets are sold with only one piece of each number (or letter) which limits what you can do with them. This set provides several duplicate numbers, making it very versatile.
I have made worksheets with pictures and names of her favorite TV characters. I present these to Maya on a small cookie sheet, along with the required Letters. Mayas job is to place the magnetic letters on top of the printed words while I dicuss the phonics and we talk generally about the characters. Maya is very engaged with this activity and promptly sits at her table when I bring out her cookie sheet. (That alone is a small miracle.) I look forward to progressing to more involved activites , and a larger cookie sheet as her abilities grow.

I bought this to replace those cheap, tiny letters that came with my 4 year old's easel. These are larger, better quality plastic, sturdier, easier for her to hold and at a great price. Definitely recommend them.

I bouhgt these to use in my classroom to write out each week's Bible verse. I use them on a wall painted with magnetic paint Most of them stick to the wall, but some just won't stay put. I have ordered several sets so I am able to swap out letters that do not stick well. They are a great size. The kids are able to read them from across the room.

57 Pc. Magnetic Uppercase Letter Set
These letters are big enough for small fingers. I bought them to teach (hands on) my 3 1/2 year old his ABC's. My 7 1/2 also likes to use them too. This is a very large set 57 pieces is great!
I had hoped that the entire back was a solid magnet but it was not. There are two circle magnets on the backs and to my surprise they work great. They stay well on the fridge and our metal front door. They do not slide down the fridge to get lost. The quality is better than ones I have seen at the Dollar stores as well as other stores.
I'm storing them in a plastic box so when we do home preschool I can find all of them.
I would recommend them to anyone wanting them to teach with. I also purchased the lower case ABC's and number set. All sets are made the same and good quality. The picture shows all three complete sets. You can see how large the sets are. Also there is a picture of the backs to show the magnets.
