There are many tiny details that go into making the perfect sandpaper letters. For example, aside from getting the letter shapes just right, there is also the placement of each letter on each card and the size of each card. Did you know that the left margins should be wider? This provides a visual support to help the child orient the letter right-side up.
This SVG takes the worry out of making these letters. We have thought of all the details so you can just follow the directions and have fun crafting and then using the beautiful letters.
Our detailed instructions explain how to:
Option 1 (recommended): Make letters from sandpaper
Option 2: Make letters from felt
Make each letter's card the right size
Orient each letter on the card to optimize the child's ability to trace
This SVG also includes the most comprehensive sandpaper letter lesson plan available with activities for typical learners, atypical learners, and older learners who need remediation.
