Our favorite new activity this year in the preschool classroom has been the Magna-Tiles. I have had my eye on these for years and this year made the investment. The best choice ever!! I am so glad I went with the 100 piece set. Since day one, the Magna-Tiles have been in constant use. While playing with Magna-Tiles the kids are using so many skills including design, math, creativity, science, building, and patterning.
The kids love these view-through geometric solids and they have been a great extension to our shapes unit. I love all the different activities we have tried so far. The shapes open and can be filled, which make them great for a sensory table or water activity. They look amazing on our light table. At circle time, I have put them in our mystery bag and the kids have had fun feeling and identifying them. We have also matched them to corresponding pictures.
