Braille: An Introduction to braille eight-week class. Learning to read and write at the same time peers were learning print is the appropriate thing to do. I have taught Braille to others who had recently lost their sight or who were just beginning to learn to read. I am comfortable and knowledgeable about the subject and welcome all questions from students and parents. Students will learn the reading and writing of ABC braille and will know what cells are and how to coordinate the braille...
I began my teaching career as a substitute teacher in special education in 1997 as I was attending UCF (University of Central Florida) in Orlando, FL and earned my MA Degree in various exceptionalities. I added two additional Certifications: RESOL (reading and language arts) grades K-12. I am currently waiting for my braille certificate from UTN (North Technical University of Ecuador). **I am very proud to be an Outschool employee for many years.** I taught various grade levels in public and private schools from age 4 years old up into university with our own girls and boys in gifted programs and magnet schools. I've earned "Highly Effective" in all areas and love teaching. Over the years, I have volunteered for international online students of braille. I pride myself on searching for ways to accommodate and adjust as needed to learner styles. I enjoy assisting families in their education decisions. I am special needs sensitive. Interesting facts about our family: we have a Bichon Frise dog named Cleopatra, named after the Egyptian queen. We enjoy cross-walking and watching movies in our backyard home theatre :)
Practice the letters learned in class and search for words with those letters.
Students will need crepe paper of bright colors: blue, yellow, red, green, orange, and purple, play-doh (or large pom-poms) and an egg carton cut down to just 6 spaces (situated as 2 columns across, 3 spaces down).
Informal assessment as the child progresses with their knowledge of letters.
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Since the class is open to blind or low-vision students, parents must be present to guide their children through the lesson.
