    Has anyone heard of or use Alphablocks?
    What do you think? My gut feeling is that it is a little confusing as letter names and sounds are used simultaneously but I’m curious what you good people think.

    Thanks for any thoughts you may have.

    I like it as something to watch when they drink their milk or some such.
    But I'd not use it as a scheme to teach phonics.

    They don't seem to find it confusing and I like it, though not as much as numberblocks.

    Thank you. Wasn’t thinking of it as a scheme but just as you describe, a little extra.

    Agree about number blocks being better.

    Alpha blocks is entertaining and useful. I would suggest that you could use it entertainment that informs, as s reference point to previous learning. Letter names and sounds can be confusing, but f they know the difference, it becomes inconsequential in their phonetic journey. The firm focus needs to be on the sounds.
    P Love numberblocks .its inspired
