Red Movable Alphabet

$29.95 USD

Are your children writing words with the traditional (pink/blue) alphabet but starting to perfect their spellings? Then it's time for the red and black alphabets!  Using these alphabets side-by-side allows children to analyze the rich depth of English etymology (the origins of words) as they begin to refine their spelling abilities. With the red and black alphabets together, they can:

  • Isolate the phonograms (write these in red and the rest of the word in black) in words for phonogram study
  • Isolate prefixes and suffixes (write these in red and the rest of the word in black) in lists of words for word study
  • Compare lists of singular (write these in black) and plural (write these in red) words 
  • Compare lists of homophones (write one in black and one in red) 
  • Compare lists of synonyms and antonyms (write the original word list in black and the comparative list of synonyms or antonyms in red) 
  • Compare lists of root words (write these in black) and their contractions (write these in red)

Once children are ready to move beyond the traditional pink/blue alphabet, the red and black alphabets are the perfect next step to support their writing work as they begin to refine their ability to spell.

  • Comes in two fonts so you can match your sandpaper letters
