Ruff’s House Teaching Tactile Set
For ages 3+
A fetching way to reach out and engage minds! Help Ruff sort through a variety of textured rubber and cloth bones—smooth, silky, scratchy, bumpy, ridged and more. Hide them in the doghouse for a fun 'search and grab' game. Great for stimulating the sense of touch, and reinforcing colors, matching, and fine motor skills.
Sensory play gives children to opportunity for hands-on learning in a way that enhances cognitive, language, and physical skills. By letting kids explore and describe the texture of Ruff’s bones, they gain descriptive and expressive language skills. To physically experience something rough or silky when you learn those words help put meaning behind the words. Those words expand a child’s vocabulary that will help in future reading and writing tasks. And just as the words help in language, when kids touch, feel, and manipulate Ruff and his bones, they are using the same small muscles in their hands that are needed for writing with a pencil. Cognitive skills are sharpened when children make connections between counting and the number of bones they’ve counted. Ruff has 20 bones. How many does he have left if he hides 3 in his house? There are two bones outside and two bones inside Ruff's house. How many does he have in all? Early math games can prepare children for math success and Ruff and his bones are ready to play. And by matching and classifying bones, children gain practice in observation and develop early analytical skills.
