Class Experience

Students will get to...
- Learn about the amazing life of Louis Braille
- Practising reading skills (all will get to read)
- Retell a story using words and pictures
- Write a recount using a storyboard
- Explore creative writing, e.g. how they can change sentence starters to make writing more interesting.
I have taught for many years. My teaching about Louis Braille connected with a unit I taught to Grade 2 students on "language."  Learning about Louis Braille not only gave them the opportunity to learn about someone who opened the door for many to be able to read - but also led perfectly onto our learning about Helen Keller.

Children will get the opportunity to bring his remarkable story to life by writing a recount. I will guide them in the planning and writing of this. 
Students can continue to work on their stories after class.
- Scissor and glue
- Notepad/paper and pen/pencil
- Colour pencils (for the second class)
(optional but helpful - a small whiteboard and marker pen)
Ongoing informal assessment in class.
40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Please be aware than Louis Braille lost his eyesight as a child after an accident and this will be covered in his life story (of course sensitively).
My own material will be used.
