Tracking Activities for Pre-Braille Learners

Tactile materials can be attached to cardstock to give pre-braille students practice with tracking and other tactile skills

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!
