SQUID: Tactile Activities Magazine

Purpose: SQUID: Tactile Activities Magazine is intended to be deceptively fun—that is, while your child or student enjoys solving a variety of activities in each SQUID issue, he will actually (secretively—Shhh!) build and acquire skills that will enable him to become a more proficient tactile reader. Intended for children ages 5 and older, these puzzles, games, and brainteasers will foster the following:

Each issue of SQUID will provide 25 activities such as:

Most of the tactile puzzles, games, and activities included with each SQUID issue are reusable and are intended to grow with the child as she acquires new skills and tactile understanding. Activities that are fun today from a 5-year-old’s viewpoint, may be appreciated and enjoyed differently by the same child years later.
