This card is part of a series of ATCs/ACEOs that feature one letter of the alphabet needlefelted onto a contrasting color of wool.
The card is the standard size (2 1/2" x 3 1/2") and is made with 100% sheep wool. The letter and background are both needlefelted with a single barbed needle onto a white wool base.
This card (and the alphabet series) came about because both of my daughters are learning their alphabet and starting to read and write. Both are hands-on, visual learners.
I use a rather eclectic approach for homeschooling, and like aspects of both the Waldorf and Montessori philosophies.
This combines the Waldorf aspect in that the item is made from all-natural, beautiful materials.
It is a modification of the Montessori aspect in that rather than working with wooden shapes of letters as a child learns her/his alphabet, reads, and spells, the child works with the image in wool.
For families/teachers/home educators, please see my profile for more information.
