Product Description

Perfect for kinesthetic learners, this multi-sensory set will have children use tactile, kinesthetic, visual, and auditory methods to strengthen their ability to build words. Touch-Units are three-dimensional letters and linked letter combinations that represent (color-coded) essential graphemes that can be used with any phonics or basal program you're using. Students will learn to link sounds to letters, recognize patterns, and build and write words before finally reading words in context. Perfect for struggling readers, students with attention deficit disorders, dyslexia, ESL, and other students who have trouble with creating words. Touch-Units are made of soft, flexible, rubber (latex free), with a textured surface to intensify the tactile neurological input; the topside is rough and the underside is smooth. If students place the Touch-Unit upside down, it will not lie flat, a clue that helps students self-correct letter reversals.

This kit includes more than 200 three Touch-Units. Categories and colors included are:

      I did a little research and discovered this was primarily developed to help remedial & disabled learners. Everyone needing to learn to read can use and enjoy them. Took them to a workshop to figure out how to use them as a teaching tool and two children jumped in and started making words and we could recognize their spelling pattern deficits.(While they were having fun!) Amazing tool and great investment if you really want to teach someone to read using phonics. I am looking forward to many years using Touchphonics. I plan to find a tackle box to store them in. The company produces matching magtiles which are super expensive for homeschooling, but can be made with a bucket of foam letters and magnet strips. Just match them to the actual letters and combinations in Touchphonics. It was through this product that I learned in reading letters there are patterns, which is a concept my 4 year old has learned real well. Now teaching her to read is alot less intimidating. Also, just as I have taught my children the alphabet individual sounds now I can teach them letter combination sounds like oo (as in book or look.) It is endless what you can do with letters like these. Make a game and have the readers find all the vowels in the pile. Or have them find certain letter sounds and so on. My fourth grader can learn more complex spellling pattern rules with silent letters like gu (as in yogurt). As a side note, I am disappointed in the packaging, but I absolutely LOVE the product!
