Teachable Touchables

$31.99

Smooth or bumpy, fuzzy or furry, soft or scratchy? Children build tactile awareness and vocabulary as they explore 10 distinct pairs of texture squares.

Product Description


Texture enriches our lives. Learning to identify differences and similarities, however, takes practice.  Teachable Touchables, a tactile matching game, introduces 10 pair of distinct textures. Each pillow or patch  fits comfortably  in small hands. Players can match using both sight and touch. That’s for beginners. What’s more challenging is matching by touch alone. To do that, put one of each texture in the cotton drawstring storage bag. Place the others in a pile. Taking turns, each player chooses a square. Then sticks her hand into the bag and feels her way to the matching square.  Perfect for inclusive play. With sighted children, wearing blindfolds provides another way to play. Doing so not only focuses their attention on tactile discrimination. It also increases their awareness of how the blind experience their environment. Includes an information sheet brimming with fun activities that “touch” on tactile discrimination, vocabulary, communication, and matching.
