While all that is fine and great and the photographers are probably drooling over such a versatile prop, he missed a couple of very important markets. Teachers and Moms and Moms who are teachers; pay attention!
We call it word work. We ask children/students to play with letters and words in the forms of magnets, tiles, play dough, etc. (the list is too long) and create and erase over and over. It's like a really frustrating version of scrabble but the children love it. Seriously, they can do it over and over and all the while they are learning to spell and the best part; they think they are playing!
So throw in some chalk blocks and hand a child a brand new piece of that coveted teacher chalk and let them create words and terms that can be erased and manipulated again and again. If this doesn't sound fantastic to you, then you are either not a teacher, not a parent or not a child.
Sure, there are other uses for these chalk blocks. Like, for example, you could leave a cryptic note for your spouse like "Buy More Wine" or "SRY ABT CAR". I will let you decide what would get them more riled up.
Jason sent me twice as many as I expected so that means I have some for you. 'Like' this post on Facebook or comment below to be entered. I would really be interested in hearing what you would do with your chalk blocks.
