Encourage children to spell simple words with the Lowercase Lacing Alphabet.
This hands on set helps to improve hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills while practicing letter recognition, spelling, patterning and sorting. The tub contains 260 tactile letter pieces moulded in 10 different colours. There are 15 laces included, which are plastic tipped for easy threading and allow a group of children to play at the same time. The 3-D letters are great for kinaesthetic learners (learning through touch, movement, doing and physical activities) you could draw around them, see if you can guess what the letter in your hand is with your eyes closed or use them to make impressions in modelling dough. Perfect for practicing spelling at home or in the classroom.
If your little one is a kinaesthetic learner and you would like to focus on letter formation why not have a look at the Tactile Letters set from Learning Resources.
