First, get started with the activity pack by coloring in the Sense of Touch Coloring Sheet. Color each picture and say its name out loud. Color in a cactus, rabbit, tissue box, pillow, and Legos. Next, build pre-writing skills in the Sense of Touch Tracing Sheet. Repetitive tracing builds muscle memory and hand strength. Be sure to say the sentences out loud. How many fingers do we have?
Hard vs. Soft
