The Small Movable Alphabet in cursive is a great way to teach spelling and grammar. The set comes in a lidded box measuring about 48 cm x 37 cm, which has the letters printed on the bottom of each compartment for easy organization. The letters are made of wood about 5 mm thick, and measure about 3 cm tall for small letters like a, e and o, and 5 cm tall for larger letters like d, b and k. The letters are approximately one-third smaller than the letters of the Large Movable Alphabet (cursive). The set includes five of each consonant in red, and ten of each vowel in blue.
