In Association with Nasen


Lift and shift. This set of root words and prefixes encourages your students to develop spelling skills and is perfect for kinaesthetic learning. We think you'll find even more uses than those in the instructions - suggestions on a postcard please...

Before using the tiles we recommend that you make sure your students understand how prefixes work and that they change the meaning of a word. For example putting ‘un’ in front of a word often makes an opposite (unhappy, unkind). You can alter the difficulty by using more or less prefixes and a limited number of roots. Start with the easier prefixes.

Comes complete with blank magnets for you to customise for your students' particular needs.

This photo of the set in use shows you what to expect. In this example the teacher has taken three prefixes and listed them in columns on the board. The student then uses the roots to create as many real words as possible.


In this example the roots and prefixes have been put together at random. Students make a list of those that make real words.


You'll find that Hands On Magnets are smaller than magnetic words and letters commonly used with Primary school children. This is specifically so that when they are used on a magnetic board words and sentences appear as text appears in a book or on a screen.

The clear font is 14 point size and each magnet measures 10mm high and range from 9mm to 37mm wide.
