Tactile Halloween Tic-Tac-Toe

Tactile Halloween Tic-Tac-Toe

I made this tactile Halloween Tic-Tac-Toe game for my braille student.  It's a fun way to reinforce tactile discrimination skills and positional concepts (left/right/across, above/below/up and down, diagonally).

It's perfect for the gen ed party or as a game for remedial work in my resource room!

Materials: 

  • Felt ghosts and black cats
  • Hard stiff felt from Target
  • Rick-rack, and it’s Large. $5.00 in the dollar section. Gotta love TARGET!
  • I added Velcro to make it easier for my braille student
  • Added the wiggle eyes to ghosts and a gemstone to each cat for quicker recognition

Procedure: 

  • Two players (this can be two children or an adult and a child)
  • Players choose either the ghost or black cat
  • Play proceeds as with a typical tic-tac-toe game, where players take turns, and the first player to get three across, down or diagonally wins.

We're so glad to hear that your students enjoyed this!  Great idea to make it a Thanksgiving activity and you could probably continue to update it for Christmas/Hanukkah, Valentine's Day, etc.  We'd love it if you'd send us some photos of your Thanksgiving verson!  You can email us at Pathsto.Literacy@perkins.org

My students loved this so much that I used our school die cut machine and felt to make leaves and turkeys to get one more month out of this activity!
