Creating a Theme for Your Braille Classroom

"On the Braille Beach"
Here's an update on how my braille room is decorated this school year. A student wanted to have a surfing theme this year. She came up with the two titles for the bulletin boards: "Braille Surfing" and "On the Braille Beach".   The surf board one will be finished in a couple of weeks. I have miniature surf boards that I bought at a teacher supply store. She will write words that are motivating to her in print and then braille a label to put on them. The "On the Braille Beach" bulletin board will be where we hang their work for display. 
This year, I have a braille station in the room. I added a bookcase as well to help hold all of the materials that I seem to be adding to the room. The room is functional and fun for both the students and the teacher!
