Great for Teaching Preschoolers to Read
By Liz P.

Comments about Talk Links™ Recordable Sequencing Tiles:
I love that you can write (with a dry erase marker) and wipe with paper towel so there are endless combinations that can be learned. You can record up to 6 seconds per tile so if you are really ambitious, your child can become a literary genius in no time. You can turn off the sound if you'd like which is a great feature. The button-cell batteries are included as well as a spare set - bonus! The only downfall I see is that there needs to be a larger set of tiles.Let's just say Kenzie loves using these tiles and hearing her own voice when pushing the button. She thinks of the craziest words and sentences that she wants to put together but alas the things tots say right? Another great learning toy from Learning Resources!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

A Fresh Approach
By Erin from Connected2Christ
Talk Links™ Recordable Sequencing Tiles by Learning Resources are a handy all-in-one must have set for any classroom. Ways to use these can be to teach sentence building, mathematics, phonics , blending sounds to make words, and more. Auditory, visual, and hands-on learners of all ages will highly benefit from this fantastic teaching tool. In this set, there are six total multi-sensory tiles. Each tile has a front and back side write-able wipe able surface. There is no dry erase marker or other writing tool provided but you'll want one to use. I highly recommend the dry erase markers by Quartet as the caps features an eraser and thus far have left no unwanted residue behind.The tiles also have a on and off switch and one side features a record button and the other a play button. The tiles each can hold up to 6 seconds of audio. When the tiles are connected, each tile will play back in the sequence they are linked up from. No worries about having to run out and get batteries so you can start using the set. The set comes with the button cell batteries needed to work plus a couple of spares. The ways I've been using the tiles in my Homeschool classroom have been to work on the skills my oldest needs to master while she's in the grade of Kindergarten. We've recorded the days of the week and written them out for her to see. She'll listen and repeat the days as they are being played back on the tiles and then I'll take the tiles apart, mix them up, and have her try to put them back in the correct order. The tiles have also been great to reinforce what she's learning in her reading and phonics lessons. I'll take a word family such as "-at" and then have that sound recorded and the sounds of a few letters such C, B, R, S, and so forth. She'll then put a consonant tile to the "-at" sound tile and make words and play them back. It's been great practice for her in building words and making sentences. She really likes being able to record her voice and hear it played back. She's learning and it's fun for her too! A tool like this just might be what a lot a of children may need just to have a fresh approach on what they may be learning and possibly struggling with. I've seen results using these just over a couple of weeks in the reading and phonic skills of my five year old daughter. So I'm highly recommending this product!
Great Multi Use Education
By Arizona Mama
from Glendale, AZ
These help to build common core reading and language skills. There is so much to learn with these talking tiles such as, phonological awareness, phonics and conventions-blend sounds to make words, build sentences and more. These are recordable multi-sensory tiles that feature a durable write & wipe surface. When these tiles are connected they will play back in sequence by pressing just 1 button. Each tile can record up to 6 seconds. The tiles are 4"L x 3"H. The set includes batteries for each link. The tiles are made from a durable foam with a thin write and wipe surface. I received this item free of charge to review on my blog.
