Hands-on Literacy and Math Kits

Literacy is vital to lifelong success, and we know that people learn in different ways. Kinesthetic learning (movement) and tactile learning (touch) are two learning styles that can be used to complement visual and auditory learning.

The Library now has hands-on literacy and math kits that will support these additional learning styles.   Designed primarily for children in preschool and elementary school, each kit comes in a clear plastic backpack, and includes activities and resources to help teachers and caregivers create and share learning experiences.
