What’s the purpose of hollow shaped letters? Are they for coloring?

Hollow shaped letters (with arrows) are introduced to make a child well aware of proper letter formation. Children will not color these hollow shapes, rather they will just trace within these letters 5 to 7 times. The teacher will sing the letter formation rhyme while children practice letter formation. The arrows guide the children where to go and the hollow shapes keep them within the limits, which results in good letter formation. Can children at this level learn the difficult vocabulary like “Octopus” and “Ostrich” given in this book? At this age, children have excellent visual memory called, ‘Photo Memory’. With the help of this ability, they can learn any word, long or short. They can read the whole word, without spelling it. This early reading gives children a strong foundation, which develop confidence and independence.
