Activities that could be included in the "travel tin":
How the tiles can be used:
- Liam is a beginning braille reader. Our tiles spell out our son’s name in braille (one letter per tile). I help Liam "build" his name.
- Depending on your child’s level, you could have tiles that have words on them so that they could build fun sentences.
- You could also ask them to find certain words or letters.
- I ask Liam questions like: Can you find the star? What’s this shape? Same or different?
- Create patterns or designs
