There are 27 capital letters (the same as the sandpaper letters)in two colours: six red vowels and 21 blue consonant, 8, 10 or 15 copies of each letter (including the dots on the i and on the j), according the how often the letters are used in the Italian language.On demand we can also supply 15 copies of each letter. The letters are made of polypropylene, an atoxic plastic material, laser cut according to our original design without any sharp angles for the safety of the children. The letters come in a wooden box with compartments depending on the size of the single letters. In each compartment the corresponding letter is engraved. The wooden box with lid is UNI EN 71-3 finished.
BIG MOVABLE ALPHABET WITH CAPITAL LETTERS
This alphabet can be used with children who have started to work with the sandpaper letters (LI03), when they recognise all the vowels and at least ten consonants. Once their minds are ready to compose a word, the children can associate the sounds to the letters. This work is excellent as preparation for reading which, as Maria Montessori observed, will be developed afterwards.
