Setting the Stage for Tactile Understanding Kit: Making Tactile Pictures Make Sense

This set of materials serves as a tool for encouraging and informally assessing the development of early tactile literacy in young children.


Setting the Stage is a set of tangible items and activities that assists young tactile readers in making the transition from the exploration of real objects to the interpretation of two-dimensional representations, both in thermoformed formats and simple raised-line illustrations. A 3-dimensional house model aids with advanced understanding of scale and perspective.

Includes:

  • Large Print Guidebook (Braille version available separately)
  • 12 real objects
  • 12 thermoformed cards depicting real objects
  • 12 raised-line cards depicting the real objects
  • 12 black-line masters of the real objects
  • 1 activity sorting tray with loop material backing
  • 3 black tray divider cards
  • 3-D house model
  • 20 tactile correct/incorrect house matching cards
  • 1 package of Crayola® Model Magic
  • 1 package of Wikki-Stix®
  • Carrying case


Objects are matched with thermoformed cards and raised-line outlines in sequenced activities that encourage early tactile literacy.
