I teach K and 1st grade intervention groups and needed something easy to implement for word building when teaching varied word work from one group to the next. (Pulling letters from the letter box wasn't working for me!) These are easy to distribute, easy to use, and easy to collect/put away (and they're always ready to go for the next group!). Re: letters rubbing off -- yes, be watchful. I have worked with my kids to have them pick up the letter tiles by the edges. (Most are pretty cooperative, but I also have my Sharpies ready!) Each kit comes with two sets of letters. The mat hold one. I plan to order additional mats (sold separately) so that the letters are all put to use. I suppose you could do some sort of storage for the extra letters and pull from those, but that's what I was trying to get away from! When we do letter work involving 2 of any letter I will either raid any mats not in use, or supply plastic letters. My kiddos love it when I pull these out -- makes for engaged word work!

My kids love using these!
We use these in first grade for our daily spelling practice. Each child has their own set kept in individual hanging bags. They love manipulating the tiles to make words. The print is beginning to come off on some of the more frequently used tiles, but all in all a great classroom tool. Probably would not stand up to many children using the same set.

Will not hold up to classroom use
I had purchased these for my students to use at the word work station. By the middle of the year the cardboard pieces glued around the metal plate were coming apart, the plastic film covering the cardboard pieces was coming off, and the letters on the foam were beginning to get wiped off.
Perhaps this product would be good for homeschool use where only 1 or 2 children are using it, but it did not hold up to daily use by 26 students.
