Flip-Over Concept Books

LINE PATHS

Flip-Over Concept Book: LINE PATHS, closed Flip-Over Concept Book: LINE PATHS, open

The first in a planned series of print/tactile books, uniquely designed by APH, that provides interactive and independent learning for young children as they build basic concepts and develop early tactile skills.

The format of Flip-Over Concept Books includes print and tactile panels that can be turned freely until the child finds adjacent panels that match each other, continue a line or pattern, complete a sequence, build an image, and so on.

With LINE PATHS, Introduce and practice:

  • Directional, spatial, and descriptive vocabulary such as curved, straight, zigzag, down, up, stair-step, wavy, diagonal, wide, narrow, etc.
  • Familiarization with many types of tactile lines that will later be encountered in tactile displays (graphs, maps, etc.)
  • Tactile discrimination and line-tracking
  • Visual discrimination and line-tracking

Continuous Line Path Worksheets are included to allow the child to practice tracking each line type, from start to finish, in a continuous motion before tracking across three separate panels.

Includes
  • Flip-Over Concept Book: LINE PATHS
  • Reader's Guide (separate print and braille versions)
  • Two Line Path Worksheets

Note: The book utilizes a special binding that opens and closes, allowing teachers and parents to do the following:

  • Randomize/shuffle the panels within each stack to prevent the child from memorizing the exact location of the panel
  • Minimize the number of line paths presented in the book, if needed, for a younger child

Recommended ages: preschool, kindergarten, and early elementary grades.

Note: Flip-Over Concept Books ARE available with Quota funds.

PARTS OF A WHOLE

Photo of the PARTS OF A WHOLE book, open to show a picture of a ball on the left, half a butterfly in the center, and half of a ball on the right.

This is the second of a planned series of print/tactile books, uniquely designed by APH. Flip-Over Concept Books provide interactive and independent learning for young children as they build basic concepts and develop early tactile skills. The format of Flip-Over Concept Books consists of tactile and full color panels that can be turned freely until the child finds adjacent panels that match each other, continue a line or pattern, complete a sequence, build an image, and so on.

The goal in PARTS OF A WHOLE is for the child to find two adjacent panels that complete the whole picture as shown in the left-hand panel.

Introduce and practice these concepts and skills:
  • Tactile and visual discrimination of various textures and shapes
  • Familiarization with basic geometry terms such as symmetry, straight, curved, half, whole, circle, oval, and star
  • Global exploration (i.e., feeling an entire image in one "tactile" glance) versus systematic exploration (i.e., carefully examining the specific details of an image that help identify it)
  • Understanding of tactile representation: comparing the visual/tactile image to the real object (if available)
  • Exposure to basic science terms: e.g., fish (tail fin, dorsal fin, pectoral fin) turtle (shell, head, tail, legs), leaf (stem, veins, blade, midrib), butterfly (forewings, hind wings, antennae), etc.
Includes
  • Flip-Over Concept Book: PARTS OF A WHOLE
  • Reader's Guide (separate print and braille versions)

  • Randomize/shuffle the panels within each stack to prevent the child from memorizing the exact location of a panel
  • Minimize the number of images presented in the book, if needed, for a younger child

Recommended ages: preschool, kindergarten, and early elementary grades.
