The following resources were made at our regular network meeting for sensory specialists from northwest authorities (UK). We gather together every 3 months to share ideas, ask advice and solve problems. For this session we made a range of resources, using tactile materials. There are some great tracking activities for pre-braillists using Wikki Stix, pasta and beads, matching games, tactile picture ideas and lots more. We had lots of fun making them, it got very competitive!
- A range of collage materials, Wikki Stix, pasta
A variety of tactile materials can be glued to index cards or braille papers to work on skills such as:
- tactile matching
- tracking left to right
- identifying same and different
- basic concepts (long/short, thick/thin, above/below, etc.)
