TeachSTIX is a wonderful product/tool to use in teaching pre-reading skills.  it is the perfect addition to any pre-k classroom’s word wall or writing/language arts center or home environment.  My four-year-old son has truly enjoyed learning sight words and i look forward to using them in my classroom.  What a fun and flexible way to guide children through the process of word recognition!  I would highly recommend this product to other teachers and parents.

My preschooler loves these things! We started out with just a few words from the pre-K set on the ceiling and playing nightSTIX for about 5 minutes each night before bed. I couldn’t believe how quickly he learned the words, especially because he just thought it was a fun game. Now we’ve added the kindergarten set and some nouns and he’s making and reading sentences! I have total confidence that he’ll be reading when he goes to kindergarten in the fall. Plus, I love that I can move them into his little brother’s room when it’s his turn and they won’t wreck my walls!

Thanks, teachSTIX!

As a speech pathologist working with children, I know very well the impact that early reading skills have on later learning and language development. However, as a parent of a preschooler, I was having trouble finding ways to approach early reading that my son didn’t find “boring” or “frustrating”. TeachSTIX has absolutely been the answer!! I allowed my son to help me put the “stickers” on the wall and he couldn’t have been more thrilled or amused. I have found since we put them up on the wall that I don’t have to do any of the work! My son will walk past the wall, stop to look at the words and will ask “Mommy, what is this word?” I will tell him and he will put the word into a sentence on his own (e.g. “up….like up and down!”) TeachSTIX has been a godsend because I don’t have to carve out specific times to focus on reading skills- it is completely integrated into all aspects of his everyday life because we have the words posted all over the house. He decides when he wants to learn his words- and he makes that decision constantly…sometimes I can’t pull him away! An added bonus for me is that I have a stainless steel refrigerator that is not magnetic so I’m not able to put magnetic letters on the front. I used to stress about that, but now I have an option that is so much better! Thank you TeachSTIX!

teachSTIX are an innovative, motivating method for teaching sight words. As an SLP, I love the versatility teachSTIX have for capturing the attention of many different populations with varying energy levels. They are durable and portable for everyday use. As a mom, I am excited that my 3.5 year old already knows sight words. She loves to play the games, especially nightSTIX and danceSTIX!
