Learning Letters...

There is a Montessori activity called a movable alphabet. Basically it is multiples of every letter in the alphabet, including upper and lower case letters used in learning the alphabet and spelling. Typically they are made of wood and have sandpaper letters. Isaac is always asking how to spell words, or making up his own words so I thought this would be a great learning tool for him.
Well, I saw on another blog. "I could do that" I thought, so trying to be thrifty, I decided I would just print the letters out on card stock since I didn't have any foam letters. Then I used my square cutter from my scrapbooking supplies and voila! Our very own movable alphabet--- with a couple of minor alterations!

I think he likes it!
