DIY, large 10 Sand Numeral Cards in each numeral set and 26 Sand Letters in each alphabet set. Numerals are tall. Lowercase letters come in three styles: Manuscript, Right-handed Cursive, and Left-handed Cursive. Sand Letter Cards are used for drilling on the Alphabet Phonograms and stroking. By tracing and saying the sounds, students are more prepared to understandingly write with a pencil or chalk in this course.

SKU: SNA-01 Categories: ,

The Do-It-Yourself, large Sand Numerals (10) and Sand Letters (26), are printed with arrows on 8 ½ x 5 ½ cards. They come in three lowercase styles: Manuscript, Right-handed Cursive, and Left-handed Cursive. On the numeral sand cards, odd numbers are printed on one color and even numbers on another color. On the alphabet sand cards, vowels are printed one color of card, and consonants are printed on a different color.

Apply the glue over the letter, pour dried, sifted, river sand over the glue. Pour or shake it off, and allow it to thoroughly dry before using. Instructions are found for preparing and using them in the Kraft envelopes.

Sand Cards are used to drill on the Alphabet Phonograms and stroking. They prepare students to write with a pencil or chalk. As soon as how-to-follow-the-arrows is understood, the child should say all the sounds of each letter in the scientific order, or the name of each numeral, as he traces it. The Sand Letters may be learned as soon as a child says his alphabet phonograms orally and knows how to count with an understanding of the quantities to 10. Older students may also use the Sand Cards to clarify or drill on basic stroking.

As the student runs his finger over the sand, for multi-sensory learning. He will feel the proper motor patterns, the shapes, and cursive slant, when the card is held on the correct slant for his orientation while tracing. Most letters are stroked continuously (without lifting the finger). The finger must be lifted for crosses or dots. Take care to repeat all the sounds for each letter in each drill. This will effectively link the sound to the shape, and establish right stroking habits.

Few handwriting courses offer left-handed orientation guides and instruction, but we find that left-handed find it very beneficial. Few handwriting courses teach all the phonograms in connection with teaching handwriting either. In this way they establish correct habits from the start, without confusion and difficulty and gain correct links between them. By providing special consideration to both hand orientations, all the children are motivated to progress. Students of both orientations develop beautiful handwriting with equal ease.

When tracing, Cursive Sand Letter Cards are held on the same slant as a writing paper or notebook, to correctly feel the stroking. Lift the tracing finger where indicated by “two strokes.”Otherwise, use one continuous stroke. While tracing, the student must say all the sounds for each letter, which he has already memorized.
