There are three styles of laminated, lowercase magnets. Each set of 26 cards is packaged in a 3 3/4 x 4 x 1 1/2 inch pack of magnetic cards. These are Book print, Left-hand Cursive, and Right-handed Cursive. The magnets accustom the student’s eyes to the styles of letters used for visual recognition, handwriting, and reading.
Magnets serve as visual aids for early recitation of the Alphabet phonograms for the youngest students. Students are taught to recognize the lowercase forms of letters first to help prevent dyslexia. The varying styles of lowercase letters all say the same sounds. Drill in alphabetical order, and randomly. Divide the letters into vowels and consonants. Say the sounds and arrange them from chaos, into alphabetical order. Match cursive forms to book print forms while saying the sounds. Review them by groups, in ever-increasing numbers of magnets, until the whole visual alphabet is connected to its sounds. The magnets are used in many ways.
Teach all the letter-sounds (phonemes) fairly fast. Right-handed children need to use only 2 sets (book print and right-handed). Left-handed students need only 2 sets. Students may also read (in phonogram sounds) the opposite cursive orientation from their own.
