The Bendaroos were added to our language arts center this week. Zoo Phonics cards were printed and laminated.
Bendaroos are pieces of string or wire that are covered with a thick coat of colored wax. This was the first time the children used them, so some kids were more interested in exploring the new media.
Other children chose one of the Zoo Phonics cards to work with. They laid out the Bendaroos onto the cards to form the letter. Currently the children are learning letters m, b, t, d, h, and p.
I found the Bendaroos at our local learning supply store.
