Book of Opposites for Kindergarten Student in Egypt

Short line and long line

A parent in Egypt made this tactile book of opposites for her 6-year-old son, Omar, who is a kindergarten student. The characteristics of each item have been labeled in print (e.g. long/short, soft/hard, big/little) and braille labels could be added as well.

Children may enjoy helping to make this type of book or matching additional items to the pages.
