Tixlers™ Traceable Letters
Colors and bumps are the Tixlers difference!
Our phonics and handwriting decks have unique full-color cards designed to make learning and teaching easier for students, teachers and tutors. Your students will learn using visual and tactile senses on the colorful, textured, letters. The kinesthetic modality reinforces the visual learning through muscle memory. The texture on the cards is pleasant to touch. We also offer posters with the lower case cursive letters for walls or bulletin boards.

The Tixlers Traceable Cursive Letters lower case edition cards are organized into four color coded groups with repeatable starting strokes. They allow the student to practice the formation of the letters many times before using pencil and paper to form the letters. The texture in the letter teaches the student proper letter formation. Additional features, such as the yellow circle, indicating a path reversal, are cues to help students get all components correct. After teaching the letters singly with this deck, you can use the cursive phonics deck to reinforce many of the connected letter pairs before your students use pencil and paper. [The actual cards don't have the branding shown on the example letter a, on the right.] The video below shows how to use these cards.
The Tixlers Cursive Posters are 12"x18" (305x457 mm) printed on heavy paper. Displayed on your wall or bulletin board, they will remind students of proper letter formation. They are available either laminated or unlaminated. These products do not have our textured printing.
The Tixlers Traceable Cursive Letters phonics deck cards and the Traceable Manuscript Letters phonics deck cards are organized into 12 groups, each color coded. Letter combinations with multiple pronunciations are coded in different groups. The letters in the cursive deck are joined, allowing you to reinforce the cursive handwriting you teach with our deck described below. You can use the manuscript deck with students who don't need cursive instruction. Each deck includes 110 cards with letters and letter groups, so you can teach many spelling and pronunciation combinations.This video shows some of the cards, and how to use them.
The picture below shows the raised dots in the loop at the top of the 'b'. In addition to the dots, there is a raised ridge on the sides of the strokes. These features allow the students to self-correct.
