53 in stock
Tactile Treasures consists of 79 thermoformed sheets featuring tactile pictures created from real objects that illustrate math and language concepts. The types of thermoformed objects include pretzels, buttons, rings, zippers, scissors, and shells. In most cases, a concept is presented twice on a single tactile page that is divided by a raised bar, but occasionally an entire page is used to convey a concept.
A Teacher’s Guidebook provides two scripts or stories for every concept introduced. The tactile pages are versatile and can be used to introduce related concepts other than those presented in the scripts. This product can also be adapted for a child with low vision by outlining the thermoformed objects with a permanent marker.
- Tactile Treasures is packaged as a complete kit consisting of the following:
- Three individual binders housing a total of 79 white thermoformed sheets (8 1/2 x 11 inches).
- Both braille and incised print page numbers appear on each sheet for ease of reference. The tactile graphics contents of each binder are as follows:

- Binder III: Position and Pre-Reading Concepts (pgs. 56–79) Teacher's guidebook (both print and braille versions provided) with two scripts/stories for each concept presented. The guidebook also gives a general overview of the materials, instructions for use, and extended activities.
