To go alongside our Precursive Alphabet Board we can now offer personalised fully cursive name boards. These will be a great help in children learning to write their name in a cursive (joined up) format as used in many UK schools.
Because the way letters join every name board is individually designed so that the joins are correct.
The font we’ve used is designed to replicate the one used in many UK schools in Reception and KS1. It has been specially designed by Mickey Elliot. Many thanks to her because without her help this wouldn’t have been possible. You can find Mickey on Twitter @MxMElliott or Instagram @MxMickeyElliott
The Montessori method is that be repeating things physically they build up a muscle memory and eventually that will become second nature and a writing habit when they put pen to paper.
Our personalised name boards are made from solid European Oak. It starts a rough wood, is then planed smooth, then sanded even smoother before being carved. It is then sanded again before being finished with a toy safe finishing oil. The boards are fully compliant with regulations and are CE Certified.
Our letter boards are 11cm wide by between 20-39cm long depending on the name.
