The Original Magnatab was designed with the Montessori learning style in mind, creating a sensory-based creative play experience.
Using the magnetic stylus, children pull the beads up to the surface to draw pictures, letters, numbers and shapes. In doing this, they feel the pull of the magnets, hear their clicking sound, and see what they are drawing. The beads are magically “erased” when pushed down by the tip of a finger or the swipe of the side of the stylus.
Sensory-based learning engages children and helps them retain what they learn! Engage multiple sense: touch (feeling the beads pop up using the stylus), sight (watch the magnetic beads pop up to form what is being drawn), hearing (hear the click of the beads as they move into place).
For added sensory learning, show children to use their fingertip to trace over the beads they just pulled to the surface, which pushes them back down and also reinforces that shape.
The tablet features easy storage for the magnetic stylus, which clicks securely into place. Great for use at home or in the classroom! Measures 7.5″ × 9″ × .75″.
