Our wooden cursive name tracing boards cater for all children particularly those who are required to learn the cursive form of writing from reception. We have had a font designed in line with the cursive handwriting taught in most UK primary schools. The cursive form is difficult for children to grasp and with our board your child can practice the movement and shape of each letter in their name in a hands on way.
One of the first words children learn to recognise is their name. As they progress to writing their name, with our wooden name tracing boards they can feel the shape of each of the letters using their finger or our tracing stick.
Our resources are based on the Montessori self-directed, hands-on approach to learning. Using our cursive name tracing boards children will build up muscle memory in their hands for when they are ready to put pen to paper. By holding the tracing stick it will help them to develop their pencil grip.
Our cursive name tracing boards are made from FSC solid beech wood and finished in a natural raw oil. The wooden tracing stick is made from beech dowel and is designed to be similar to that of a pencil to help your child develop their pencil grip.
All our wooden products are CE tested.
Our wooden name boards vary in length depending on the first name of your child. The width will always be 11.5cm and the depth 2cm.
The beech wood dowel tracing pencil is 10cm long.
We now have the option to combine both the pre-cursive and the cursive form of writing on one board. If you would like your child's first name in both forms please select 'Double Sided' from the menu option.
** Please make sure you put the first name you would like on your order notes**
