Connetix tiles are wonderful for open ended play but they’ve also been so helpful in making learning engaging for my school-aged children. During distance learning, I was often faced with how to make revising the content my second and fourth grader needed to do more interesting. Manipulating the tiles by moving them around or clicking the correct answers together gave a great feeling of satisfaction for my children. They also make terrific game boards! If you have a child who isn’t motivated by a worksheet, get out your Connetix and transfer its content to the tiles! We use either washable chalk markers (check they’re water based) or dry erase markers to write on our tiles – just make sure to wipe off straight after your play! (We haven’t had a problem with either in leaving marks on our tiles.)
