The term ‘early literacy’ covers all activities which help children develop writing skills, such as scribbling, recognizing shapes and colors, and hand and eye coordination. These activities help to develop motor skills and visual discernment, leading up to the difficult task of writing. That is what Lacing ABC+123 is for. By connecting letters and numbers to create chains and necklaces, children practice fine motor skills while playing. This is important in terms of cognitive and manual development, and at the same time it helps them to memorize the shapes of letters and numbers. Includes 30 letters, 10 numbers, 12 laces, 1 coloring book, and Play Montessori Guide.
