Textured Books

Textured books are good motivators for students who are not usually interested in looking at books and for students whose visual impairments interfere with their ability to take in or process visual information.

This little girl seemed so-so with me presenting a fabric book for her fingers to explore.  She wasn't upset by the textures, just not very interested.  But, let the cute boy in class walk over and show interest in the book and all of a sudden it's a hot commodity.

When he was next to her she opened her hands and explored the book.  Oops, she explored his hand as well.  Valentines Day is drawing near.
