Being literate enables children to begin to read and write – essential for later life!
So where do wooden toys come into this?
Aside from the more obvious alphabet puzzles that support letter recognition, wooden toys can help provide opportunities that get your little ones chatting, listening and interacting. Role-play or imaginary play allows your kids to learn new vocabulary.
The Wooden Toy Shack offers a selection of learning-based toys and puzzles that can help develop letter recognition, alphabet familiarity and spelling. Not only are written letters and words important at this stage but also spoken language; pretend playsets (shops, markets, tea-sets and dolls houses) are a great way to encourage role-play that can widen vocabulary, especially if used with mum and dad.
