Montessori sandpaper letters and numbers

Look what arrived in the post this weekend! Recently Defne is showing a great interest in letters. Since November, she can write her own name. She traces the words she sees here and there, she tries to write her friends' and teachers' names. (She goes to preschool) So I decided that it is a good time to buy sandpaper letters for her.
Montessori sandpaper letters are individual cards containing letters of the alphabet in raised sandpaper. They are used to familiarize children with the look and sound of each letter while the child is also developing muscle memory of the letters in preparation for writing Here is a link on how to introduce sandpaper letters
