The stage 3 word formation writing mats aim to further develop your child's confidence and independence in writing and also reading.  They are the next stage to our stage 2: letter formation mats.

Tips - When learning to write it is always advised to make it as fun as possible by incorporating play  eg. creating menus, making signs for a toy shop or labelling household objects.

When moving on to sentences be sure to bring awareness to capital letters, spaces and full stops.

Why choose our learning mats?

  • A gradual approach to learning to write designed to aid confidence and development of independent letter formation (stage 1, stage 2, stage 3)
  • Our letter formation mats have clear 'starting stars' so the child knows where to begin the pencil movement and 'ending dots' so they know where to finish.  
  • They promote learning to write by engaging visual memory and motor memory.

    Great resource!

    Got the first words for my daughter. She loved the shapes so much during lockdown last year. They prepared her nicely for her school start. Can only recommend!
