Homemade Flash Cards for Shapes

Started making my own flash cards for Liam this week. I decided to start with the basic shapes first in English and in Spanish and then move to colors, numbers, and letters from there. I used card stock paper to make them thick and then use self-laminating sheets to seal them from his sticky hands and drool. They are high contrast and have English on one side with Spanish on the reverse so that his sitter and I can work on them with him. We are in the process of purchasing a Braille label maker to put clear label strips with the Braille shape names on the cards as well so that Liam can go ahead and get used to the feel of Braille. I looked everywhere for some to buy but could not find any large enough for us so I just decided to make my own. We will see if they work!
