In Association with Nasen


Lift and shift. This set of root words and suffixes 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 that your students understand how suffixes work and how they change the grammatical sense of a word. For example putting er after a verb often changes it to a noun (help becomes helper). Putting ed after some verbs changes their tense (helped).

You can alter the level of difficulty by using more or less prefixes and a limited number of roots. Start with the easier suffixes first.

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 student using the magnets to make three words with suffixes. They then write a sentence using each word, to help them understand it in context.


In this example the teacher is using the magnets to help teach the spelling rule - when adding ing drop the e at the end of verbs, for example hope becomes hoping. The teacher has used a dry wipe pen to alter existing tiles, and created new roots using some of the blank tiles included in the set.


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.
