My student is 5 years old and a beginning braille reader. He loves simple sight word books that he can read a long with. I love adapting these books for him by making them tactual and in braille. The student is also learning about colors and this is a great way to incorporate these concepts that he comes across in his everyday environment. With Easter coming up, I thought it would be a fun book for him to read and explore!
- textured papers
- buttons, pompoms, and other tactile materials
- braille paper
- braille writer
- Each page says “A _________ egg.” which allows you to add in as many as you like.
- I have an assortment of textured papers, yarns, and objects that I used to create each egg. I always keep everything on the egg of the color listed on the page.
- The last page of the book is ” A colorful egg.” I used this as an opportunity to have my student contribute to the book by having him create his own textured egg that can be glued into the book.
This is a very basic book with fun textures that I believe could be enjoyed by students with vision impairments and multiple disabilities.
