Tapping Out With Tiles is one of the greatest teaching tools to come into my classroom during my 20 years of teaching. By teaching students to pay attention to the position of their mouth when making letter sounds while at the same time tapping out words and moving manipulatives, learners are mastering the skills of reading and spelling at an amazing rate. Student of all levels, including my non-English speakers, have shown tremendous growth in just a few weeks of using the program.
