Adorable doghouse play set provides a fun way to develop children's sense of touch.
Ruff's house helps develop tactile discrimination, fine motor skills, matching, taking turns, and sharing. Ten sets of bones feature ten textures (20 bones in all) in bright, friendly colors.
Kids love helping Ruff, reaching inside Ruff's house to feel and find two matching bones. All bones are textured and made out of rubber or cloth and feature smooth, silky, scratchy, bumby, ridged and other textures. Easy storage; just place Ruff and his bones inside the dog house. Includes Ruff the dog, 20 bones, doghouse, and activity guide.
Learning how to identify the textures of Ruff's bones in words helps students expand their descriptive language abilities.
Grasping, exploring, and manipulating the different textured bones leads students to further develop their ability to use their fingers and hands purposefully and improve manual dexterity.
Early math games can prepare students for math succes. 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?
