What people are saying about our products

Having seen a presentation by Sharona about the School Start Buddy, our Parents and Friends decided that this would be a perfect gift for new families that come into our school. The response from the students and parents has been extremely positive. Parents have commented on how much their child wants to use their new ‘buddy’ and how eager they are to explore the letters and sounds in the School Start Buddy. It is a perfect way for kids to begin to explore and develop early Literacy skills at home. The information and training involved on the web is also great for parents that may be unsure of how to use the buddy effectively and provides explicit but simple instructions about how to support their child in this exploration. We will be back for more!

You can put words together and make words yourself. It is a fun way to learn and it has helped me figure out new words and sounds. You can draw in it and practice the alphabet

The School Start Buddy has helped my students who have poor fine-motor skills and are reluctant to write. The magnetic resources allow them to develop their letter recognition and early reading and writing skills without having the barrier of actually writing. When we do writing tasks, they are much more willing to ‘have-a-go’ on the whiteboard because they are able to quickly erase any errors they make.

School Start Buddy is brilliant. It has been a fantastic resource in helping my sons build the foundational skills in both reading and writing. My sons love the engaging and interactive activities and I love the quality time I get to spend with my boys, watching them grow and learn.

It has made homework a fun activity that has engaged our school-aged daughter, and also her younger sister who has been practicing her “writing.” It neatly packs away after each use which I appreciate, and I know it is ready for immediate use again next time. We have had fun creating new ways to learn words, sounds and sentences.

My boys love the hands-on approach of using magnetic letters to learn their weekly list of spelling words. I love the design of the case – it is easy for them to find the letters as they are clearly displayed
