And don't forget the Braille Caravan!
Join the Braille Caravan - an amazing tactile toy from Creative Adaptations
for Learning. Made in the USA, each block of the caravan represents a
braille cell fashioned in goldenrod non-toxic plastic, with six contrasting
black pegs that glide up or down to form dots 1-6. Use your finger, stylus,
or pencil to push the peg forward from the underside of the block, just as
you would with a slate and stylus. Flip the block over and read what you
wrote. Blocks connect to form a caravan of words, numbers, or sentences -
build, challenge, and hone tactile reading, writing, and spelling skills.
Braille Caravan includes 30 blocks in a carrying bag, an Activity Guide, and
an English Braille Symbols Chart, for only $34!
