In this pack, you’ll find printables to make the letters in your labels in lowercase manuscript, D’Nealian, or cursive. Any of those would be great for Montessori homes or classrooms, depending on which font you prefer. In Montessori education, we typically only introduce phonetic sounds rather than letter names and lowercase letters rather than uppercase letters. Children spontaneously pick up both the letter names and uppercase letters.
If you prefer both uppercase and lowercase letters, there are labels for each picture with a capital letter and lowercase letter in manuscript, D’Nealian, or cursive.
Because there are 30 drawers in many craft supply cabinets, we have labels for the phonograms ch, ph, sh, and th. I find that these often need to be introduced to children who are learning beginning sounds when they get confused by words like “shark.” On the resource page, you’ll find the link to my post on introducing phonograms. Of course, feel free to use these four drawers for something else.
Note: This is a digital download and does not include the supply cabinet. For places to get your supply cabinet and language objects, be sure to check out my post on DIY Alphabet Box Multi-Level Printables and Resources. In that post, you’ll also find ideas for using the movable alphabet letters for object and letter matching using the alphabet box and for word building and sentence building for older children.
