|'Wet, Dry, Try' writing tray to be used with the chalkboards.|
Small dish for water; sponge; two pieces of chalk (one for the teacher, one for the child receiving the lesson).
This lesson is typically done with a teacher because the first part requires the teacher to demonstrate the formation of a letter, word, or number:
|First, the teacher writes the letter ('t') with a piece of chalk.|
|Next, the child dips her finger into the small dish with water and proceeds to trace the same letter produced by the teacher.|
|Then, the child retrieves the sponge to 'dry' the letter by tracing over using the same motion.|
|Lastly, the child 'tries' the letter on her own with the chalk.|
|This photo, showing a separate lesson, demonstrates the same process only practicing writing words rather than letters.|
