Chalkboard Letters - Print

 

 

Click on the video to playUsed in combination with the Sandpaper letters which help the child master the movement/motion necessary for reproducing the shape of the letters, this material prepares the muscular mechanisms required for handling, manipulating and controlling the writing instrument.  This affords the child the opportunity to complete the same movements first without and then with the writing instrument - in this case chalk.


Perfect companion of Sandpaper letters (See video below)

 

 

27 letters of the alphabet on a writable/erasable board.
