Playtime Felts ~ Become a Certified Digi-Download Reseller!


http://www.playtimefelts.com/store/p26/Cursive_Alphabet_Set_with_Black_Boarder_and_Polka_Dots_Resell_Rights.html


Playtime Felts is a great resource for parents and teachers. As a mother of three little kids, I know how important it is to assist them with what they are learning in school. Cursive is one lesson some schools are removing from their curriculum in my area, and I am truly against that removal. My oldest son, 8, attends Catholic school, and they are keeping cursive writing in their curriculum. He began learning some cursive letters last year in 2nd grade, and I have been working with him on and off all summer. He seems to enjoy it, however, tends to forget a few of the letters, so having these flash cards as a resource is going to greatly help him!

Flash Cards seem to work well for my autistic three year old son; the cursive letter downloadable flash cards are perfect for him to practice his letter sounds, as well as an introduction to see what cursive writing looks like.  Many kids learn by doing, so by printing out the upper and lowercase cursive letter cards, my kids are able to trace the letters with a crayon or pencil to get the feeling of how they should write the letter. For use as flash cards, hold it up, pronounce the sound of the letter, use it with a word, use it in a sentence, and then have them trace it. If it is something they can relate to, they are more apt to remember it. For example, for c, my older son loves cars so I would relate it to that, but my younger son loves cookies so for him I would relate the letter and sound to the work cookies.

It is best to start early with kids, teach them sounds, let them see what the letters look like, play games with the felt sets offered at Playtime Felts. My son who is 3 was recently diagnosed with autism. We knew there was an issue when he was non-verbal at the age of 18 months. So, I called the county and signed up for the early intervention program, he was evaluated and approved for Speech, Special Education and Occupational Therapy. Speech is currently working on sounds with him; he does extremely well with visuals. So, when working with kids, start around 18 months old, they absorb everything and will be able to build from what they are seeing and hearing. My daughter is 22 months old and is spitting out new words each day, it truly is amazing! 

Playtime Felts has printables that you can purchase, they can practice combining letter sounds, but can also color them in too.

These cards are perfect for kids that are just learning cursive, or need to brush up on their cursive letters.  My older son loves to trace the letters and my younger son likes to go through them as flash cards and imitate the letter sounds! There are so many options to use these for, create a bulletin board for a classroom or playroom. Have the kids spell out their names with the cursive letters (we have a lot of E’s so this requires printing a few extra, but it is a great opportunity for them to learn how to spell and recognize their own name) and you could even make banners out of the cards too. The creativity and learning opportunities are endless!
