Trace textured alphabet to associate letter shapes and sounds
Children use their muscular, tactile and auditory senses to register shapes of letters and the sounds they are associated with.
Children's sense of touch is very sharp in the early years and they love feeling objects and textures. Tracing leads to building a muscle memory of the shapes of the letters, which is a much more effective way to learn than by rote, or by merely seeing or saying. That's what makes this toy so special as children are guided by parents to trace, mimic and associate letter shapes with sounds.
Set includes 26 wooden cards with sandpaper letters pasted on them, red cards for consonants & blue for vowels, a wooden tray for stacking the cards, a detailed instruction manual all packed in a beautiful Skola Doodle box.
Size of tray with cards: 19 cm x 12 cm x 19 cm
Once children understand how each letter is visually and phonetically represented, they are ready to form simple three letter words (See How).
Please watch the video given below to learn the phonetic sounds of the English language.
By tracing over the textured letters with their fingers, children begin to associate symbols or letter shapes to the sounds which sets the base for reading and initiates them in the pre-writing stage. This simple fine motor skill activity enhances their sense of texture as well. An ancient technique, that uses visual, muscular, auditory and textural senses, all reinforcing alphabet shape and sound.
Trace the letters with the middle and index fingers of the right hand from up to down.Tracing can be done from right to left or left to right.
After tracing the letter completely, say the phonetic sound.
Eg “b” has the sound of the Hindi 'b', not bee"
