Montessori Cursive & D'nealian Sandpaper Letters
This is a set Montessori Printable Letter Tracing Cards (also known as Sandpaper Letters) in Cursive and D'Nealian Lower Case Letters.
Learning Letter Sounds
For those who may not be familiar with Sandpaper Letters, this is a set of alphabet letter cards that are organized right side up into a box or container.
The traditional wooden letters have a thin coat of sand on the letters themselves. These cards will help with writing preparation, but also to help your child to learn letter sounds. Each letter is presented to your child demonstrating the formation of each letter by finger tracing. This practice helps them to retain the early muscle memory and coordination to form each letter. After tracing your child can practice the formation in a sand/salt tray. You can fill a small tray or even pie plate with salt (the easiest to find and work with) in a tray.
Full instructions and activity ideas are included with your letters.
