Remember those movable or magnetic alphabets you grew up with as a kid that taught you how to learn your letters and sounds?
Once children learn to identify and blend the sounds of the letters of the alphabet they can often ready to build words on their own. However, the ability to write them down with paper and pencil may require much more time and practice to acquire. Wooden moveable alphabets have been a staple in Montessori classrooms for generations. And it’s no wonder: they are an invaluable tool for learning to read, write, and spell.
Moveable Alphabets have been known in various montessori programs to help children ‘write’ words long before mastering the skill of writing itself.
Children can phonetically sound out words, one letter at a time to build words.
Our friends over at Gnaana have just launched their own version of moveable alphabets that not only help you learn consonants and vowels but also help you string together Hindi words too!
These wooden alphabets are designed for kids who are ready to take the next step and form Hindi words. This set contains 68 pieces so you can form a complete set of Hindi alphabets: 1 set of vowels (11 pieces), 1 set of consonants (36 pieces), and 2 sets of matras (21 pieces). Vowels and matras are painted blue and consonants are painted red. The set comes with a great parents guide to help parents use the alphabetes to share Hindi with kids more effectively with the blocks.
And when you’re done for the day, pack them up in our beautiful eco-friendly tin box!
NOTE: Due to small parts, this product is not intended for children under 3 years of age.
