Magnetic alphabet letters have long been used as a teaching tool for preschool, kindergarten, and elementary school teachers who focus on spelling, writing and reading skills. The three-dimensional plastic magnetic letters are easy for little hands to hold and add a tactile element to learning. Magnetic letters come in a variety of sizes, materials and colors. While plastic magnetic letters are the most common, softer foam options are also available.
These sets include the whole alphabet in uppercase or lowercase letters; in multiple colors, patterns, and plain black; and in various sizes from small desktop options to large display ones. Some sets include magnetic letters and numbers to help you teach mathematics to students along with reading and spelling. Because they stick to blackboards and most whiteboards, teachers can easily show their lessons to students. Magnetic spelling sets and boards with lines put the learning in the students' hands as well.
