Educational and Fun go hand in hand: The Movable Alphabets are part of the Montessori area called ‘Language’ and are specifically targeted for ‘written language’. However, they are also used with smaller children who are learning to differentiate the sound that each letter produces. In this way, he can begin an exploration stage where he realizes that each letter has a specific sound and as he joins different sounds he starts to form words. Those words are composed of symbols and because of those symbols people can communicate through writing and reading. That is why this material is so appealing for children over 3 years old. They are eager to put in writing every word they learn starting with their own names. With younger children it's important to let them explore and allow them to join letters to form words no matter if they are wrongly spelled. At the beginning it’s also important they recognize the sounds of the letters. As they practice writing those words with the movable alphabets they will naturally and spontaneously start reading them. And so, reading and writing will become easy and playful.

As the child matures he can continue using these letters with different purposes: he can be asked to write specific words, later on to write short phrases, then simple sentences and so on. A fun activity can be to give the child various objects (according to his writing abilities at the moment) and ask him to write their names. There are many ways to play with the Movable Alphabets and favor the child’s learning.

With this educational toy the child initiates the exploration and analysis of his language; he becomes aware, little by little, of how words are formed with their graphic symbols and the Movable alphabets become a crucial part in the preparation for writing.

Why buy this item: The Movable Alphabets are a great way to start playing and teaching children the importance of written communication skills. Not only can you choose from the different colors the alphabets come in but also work with  ‘consonants’ and ‘vowels’ which are offered in red and blue, too. This way, as the child progresses he can be offered new teachings and enrich his literacy. This wooden toy can be used in many different activities according to the child’s age and maturity, providing a wide range of possibilities for learning and developing writing and reading skills.
