"My preschooler loves her reading blocks. She can now "blend" together different letters and read simple words. She feels so much accomplishment with what she can read because it's so easy to pick up on the sounds and patterns the letters make together."
Love that it's wood. And seriously, hardly any clean-up, if any. Everything is contained and this is our go-to toy to bring when we're on the go."
"These blocks + the flashcards are a hit. I looked at different brands for the blocks, and this was the only one that went above and beyond just selling the blocks. The flashcards and tote bag together add so much value."
Give them the right tools. Help them sound it out. Then let them take the lead. The letters will do its magic. We just help set up the foundation.
"My kindergartener can't get enough of this! She thinks it’s a toy, but I know it’s helping her learn, so it’s a win win. She loved using it to teach her little brothers- another total mom win! This will be something all my kids will enjoy for a long time- I couldn’t recommend it more if I tried!"

Studies show that phonics instruction greatly improves a child's foundation for word recognition, spelling, and reading comprehension.
Our Spin-and-Read Blocks are inspired by the Montessori philosophy that children learn best when given the opportunity for self-directed exploration. Our educational blocks introduce reading through letter blending using simple CVC (consonant-vowel-consonant) words.
Why 3-letter words?
Three-letter words are English words in its simplest, most elementary form. These words are also called CVC words or consonant-vowel-consonant decodable words. Learning the patterns in words helps establish a strong foundation for advancing reading skills.
We're talking about words like H-A-T and D-I-P and F-U-N. Words that form enough of the English language that your child will soon be able to start reading short stories based mainly on these decodable words. Talk about a confidence booster!
Because going screen-free allows children to go at their own pace, make their own discoveries, and solidifies their learning into their long-term memory.
Our phonetic reading blocks celebrate independent learning within clearly defined instruction, a Montessori approach to learning. Ownership over their learning = more celebration when they realize they can read, spell, and rhyme!
Well, why not? Coupled with a set of double-sided flashcards, these rotating reading blocks set your child up for success. The heavy-duty boundable flashcards are designed to grow with your child. One side features a picture with its written word, and the other side features just the picture. This allows both absolute beginners and more advanced readers to engage in self-correction and provides endless ideas for phonics games and activities.

A study in 2019 showed that 65% of fourth graders in the U.S. are not proficient readers. This statistic is alarming and sad. Reading affects so many areas of one's life and lacking confidence in it can be a huge roadblock to the type of growth and development we want for our kids.
A proper phonics understanding is basically the understanding of the relationships between sounds and their spellings.
1) It leads towards reading fluency.
2) Learning to read using clues to guess will not do that.
3) Studies actually show that learning to read doesn't happen "naturally," but must be taught.
If so - let's help them learn. Let's give them the right tools to learn and be empowered. Let's not leave it to chance. Because there's no better time, but now.
