A SENSORY GAME of ASSOCIATION for facilitating various aspects of children’s psychological development:

- The sense of touch: tactile discrimination by recognising textures.

- Acquiring a basic vocabulary relating to the textures of objects.

- Tactile memory.

RECOMMENDED AGE From age 3 upwards.

METHOD OF PLAY AND RECOMMENDATIONS FOR USE

- The 16 TOUCH CARDS (8 kinds of textures, duplicated) are for recognising and differentiating various textures: 1. imitation leather/leather 2. wood 3. plush 4. aluminium 5. raffia (sackcloth) 6. plastic 7. loops 8. sandpaper

- The 16 PHOTO CARDS are for associating the touch cards with real objects which have the same texture.

- To help the children make the correct association between the touch cards and the photo cards, there is a SELFCORRECTING SYSTEM ON THE BACK:  The photo cards have numbers printed on the back from 1 to 8, according to the texture they represent (there are two objects for each texture).  The touch cards do not have numbers printed on the back but stickers are provided with the numbers 1 to 8 for you to stick to the back of them so they coincide with the number on the photo cards featuring objects with the same texture.

- The BLINDFOLDS are for doing texture memory activities with the TOUCH CARDS.

- As there are two TOUCH CARDS for each texture and two BLINDFOLDS, two children can play at the same time.

ACTIVITIES WITH THE TOUCH CARDS: recognising and discriminating between textures.

- With the touch cards spread out on the table, the student should pick up one of them, touch it with his/her fingertips and give a description of the texture: rough or smooth, warm or cold, hard or soft, etc.

- Finally, the student should name the corresponding texture (wood, aluminium, sandpaper, leather, loops, plastic, raffia or plush), with the teacher’s help if necessary.

WITH THE TOUCH CARDS AND THE PHOTO CARDS TOGETHER: associating textures with objects.

- One player: with 8 touch cards and the 16 photo cards spread out on the table, the student should pick up one of the touch cards and then select the two photo cards featuring objects with the same texture, placing them next to the touch card (one on each side). Once all the cards have been positioned, the student can turn them over to see if the numbers on the back of all three match.

- Two players: separate the 16 touch cards into two groups of 8 cards (one card for each texture), and do the same with the photo cards. Distribute the 8 touch cards and 8 photo cards to each student. They need to associate each touch card with its matching photo card (making pairs and then checking on the back to see if the association is correct).

WITH THE BLINDFOLDS AND TOUCH CARDS: memorizing textures.

- With the blindfolds on and the touch cards spread out on the table, the student should touch the cards one by one with the fingertips to “guess” which texture is which.

- Separate the 16 touch cards into two identical groups of 8 cards and tell the student wearing the blindfold to put them into pairs.

CONTENTS - 16 TOUCH CARDS of 9 x 9 cm (8 kinds of textures, duplicated). - 16 PHOTO CARDS of 9 x 9 cm, featuring objects that represent the different types of textures. - 2 BLINDFOLDS. - Sheet of STICKERS numbered in duplicate from 1 to 8.
