Explore the Components

Sound Around Box™

Each side of the Sound Around Box provides interactive activities to build readiness fundamentals: letters, rhyming, syllables, listening, cooperation, and more! Students can build letters, fill in the box with familiar items to teach the beginning sound of the item's name, and picture tiles help teach rhyming words, compound words, and syllables.

Sound Around Box™

Perfectly designed for the hands and minds of young learners, these doublesided cards provide a wealth of multisensory learning experiences. Activities reinforce good letter and number formation, recognition, and memory. Children can self-check their work by flipping cards as they assemble pictures of animals.

Sound Around Box™

Four basic wood shapes help young learners assemble capital letters: Big Line, Little Line, Big Curve, and Little Curve. Used in teacher-directed play, students learn size, shape, and positional concepts. Once they're ready to build letters, they use the pieces to assemble the shapes into letters on the mat or Letter Cards.

Roll-A-Dough Letters®

This intuitive activity helps children build hand and finger strength while learning to recognize and build capital letters and numbers. The blue tray is uniquely designed with a familiar smiley face to guide children to start at the top, helping them to avoid eliminating pesky reversals.

Stamp and See Screen®

This fun tracing activity helps children learn to build their capitals, step by step. Young learners stamp and learn letters by using magnetic pieces: Big Line, Little Line, Big Curve, and Little Curve. Tracing the letters with the magnetic chalk is a first step toward writing the letter with strokes. When they're ready, they can progress to tracing the letter on a blank screen
