ABSTRACT
This article evaluates the desk tape cursive letter line and desk tape manuscript letter line manufactured by Instructo Corporation. These tapes come in rolls of 40 individual self-adhesive alphabets. They adhere easily to individual desk tops so that each student can work with his own alphabet. The tapes appear to be similar, if smaller, versions of the alphabets commonly seen above chalkboards in thousands of classrooms. Certainly they can aid children in seeing what the shape of the letter is, but the tapes do not give any indication of how a letter is formed motorically or the sequence in which the strokes occur.
