"What the hand does the mind remembers" - Maria Montessori
Our personalised wooden name tracing boards are the perfect hands-on resource for your little ones. The first thing children learn to write is their name and with our wooden tracing boards they can feel the shape of each of the letters using their finger or our tracing stick. Our resources are based on the Montessori self-directed, hands-on approach to learning. Using our name boards children will build up muscle memory in their hands for when they are ready to put pen to paper. By holding the tracing stick it will help them to develop their pencil grip.
As our name tracing boards are a timeless product made from good quality solid wood, it can grow with your family. Once your child no longer needs the board for learning it can be hung on their bedroom door or over their bed as a classic wooden decor piece.
Encourage your child to use different resources like buttons, beads and felt balls to fill each of the letters in their name. This will also help them become familiar with the shape each letter makes.
For more ideas on how to use our boards, you can follow us on instagram @thelittlecoachhouse where we share photos and videos of the fun ways to use them.
Our personalised name tracing boards are made from solid beech wood which has been planed to be completely smooth. This means that your child can handle their name board without any worry of getting splinters from the wood. Our boards are then coated in a natural beeswax oil to help protect the wood. The wooden tracing stick is made from beech dowel and is designed to be similar to that of a pencil to help your child develop their pencil grip.
