Shelf liner: For tactile and multisensory learning. Stimulates learning by accessing multiple brain pathways. You can use this to have students trace numbers with their fingers or you can place a piece of paper over the shelf liner and have the student write the numbers. The bumpy surface activates a different part of the brain. Have the student trace the number with their finger while saying the number. To help commit the number to memory, have them repeat this process three times. Other tactile ideas include sand or rice trays, shaving cream, or playdoh. Teach number sequencing and counting.
