On Tactile Learning

After a year of homeschool and watching how Sophie learns best, I finally figured out that she is a hands on learner - or a tactile learner.
We've had great success using household items to do everything from math to spelling! 

* we use straight pretzels to make letters, both upper case and lower case - and they make a fun snack!

* we use wooden train tracks to make letters and have the trains drive around them.

* we do adding/subtraction with blocks.

* we do sorting with colored foam blocks.

* we use rice spread in a cookie tray to trace letters and shapes.

* we use basic shapes to make everyday objects out of blocks

There are so many other ways that you can use tactile objects to help your child thrive!

Do you have a tactile learner? What tips do you have?
