As I’ve mentioned several times before we’re using All About Reading level 1. One of the big components of the program is spelling out the words and then reading them. They recommend using spelling tiles, and I posted an earlier tip how we use ours with velcro and that was working for us.
That’s still working for us. But, my new tip is to sometimes take a break from that and write it using dry erase markers. If you don’t have a dry erase board you can use a mirror or window and it will wipe off just as well.
