The Large Movable Alphabet in cursive is a great way to teach spelling and grammar. The set comes in two lidded boxes measuring about 61 cm x 35 cm each, which have the letters printed on the bottom of each compartment for easy organization. The letters are made of wood about 5 mm thick, and measure 5 cm tall for small letters like a, e and o, and 9 cm tall for larger letters like d, b and k. The letters are approximately one-third larger than the letters of the Small Movable Alphabet (cursive). The set includes five of each consonant in red, and twenty of each vowel in blue.
