Educational, personalizable, multi-sensory learning aid

Image Number 10 for United States Patent #8092223.

Learning aid device/method for children/adults/second-language-learners learning to read and write comprising a single or double-sided card depicting one or more words in upper and/or lower case displayed on ruled upper/lower case guidelines, and a corresponding real object image. The card includes ample space for a left or right-handed learner to copy/draw the word(s) depicted with erasable markers next to and/or below the word(s). The card is laminated (including a sealing margin) or coated, and is heavy-duty. The text may be textured, distinguishing it from the card's slick surface. When touching the text, learners gain finger/hand muscle training, assisting them in manipulating the writing instrument (marker). A key aspect of the inventive learning device is the provision of personalizable/interactive activity features, namely a slot at the edge of the image area where a picture personal to the user/learner may be inserted into a clear pocket viewable from the front of the card.
