Used for word-forming games. The numbers in the file names indicate how many of each letter to print for the full 117 tile English-French set with weighted quantities.
These are lower case cursive tiles inspired by Montessori sandpaper letters. Have the learner trace the letter properly as they hear or use its sound. There are hundreds of connected activites online, some listed below.
Has french letters é and è. (Accented e's).
I print 4 tiles per print job, each 2mm x 2 inch x 2.5 inch. The holder included holds 1 to 4 tiles.
I used sharpie to color the letters. You can pause and switch filament. The hollow form of the letters start at 1mm. Montessori methods suggest one color for the vowels and a second, contrasting color for the consonants.

Overview and Background
The word game is used to form words, to learn to feel for the relative importance of each letter, adding for younger learners, and keeping score and fair play for older learners.
The montessori sandpaper letters are used to help the learner internalize the shapes of letters, as a precurser to writing.
