As a parents and educators, we are always looking for ways to make learning the ABC’s fun. Add in a Ravensburger puzzle and kids are learning while engrossed in their search for the right piece. I used their new puzzle for carryover in speech therapy as my 6 year-old friend discussed what piece he was searching for, making sure he was using his /s/ sound while he was at it.
A good puzzle can be used for a variety of language lessons and in this case the alphabet theme is cleverly woven throughout the puzzle to give location clues for pieces based on letters, matching objects and people, and the printed word corresponding to images. Kids get a literacy work-out as they search for pieces based on the associated sound and letter, making critical links leading to reading.
Here is my full review of Ravensburger’s new ABC Puzzle.
