Writing Prompts for Summer Journals

student using braillewriter
Last year I created summer homework for one of my beginning braille students.  This year I've created more books like those for her to practice reading over the summer and I have also added journal topics for her to do over the summer. The thought is for her to do two to three each week and to braille three to four sentences on the topic as a minimum.
