Tactile Tangrams

While walking through Barnes and Noble, I noticed this gem for $5.99 with a 30% discount...10% more for having a membership. I promptly bought several. I brought them home and added texture to the shapes. If there were two shapes that were the same size, I used the same texture. Different sizes or shapes were different in texture. I utilized textured paper, the Xyron sticker maker machine. It took longer for me to decide on the textures then it did to make each of the shapes textured. 
I plan to use this as a prebraille activity for a student and the classroom teacher can also use it in her math instruction.
