The Sandpaper Letters guide the hand for writing as the child traces the letter shapes in the style and direction that they are written. Based on Maria Montessori's original design, each Sandpaper Letter is in lower case with the consonants on boards painted pink, and the vowels on boards painted blue. Each board has a space on the left and right for the child to steady it with one hand while tracing the letter with the other.
