Touchphonics Single Touch Units Set

The Touch-Units include more than 200 three-dimensional textured-plastic letter units, color-coded by category, and representing all English graphemes. Touch-Units are soft; the topside is rough and the underside is smooth. If students place the Touch-Unit upside down, it will not lie flat, a clue that helps students self-correct letter reversals.
