Cymbal Braille File Folder Game

Dual media learners can practice the whole word braille contractions the, and, with, of, child, still, and to, with this file folder game.

This file folder game can be used with low vision students who are beginning to learn braille.   Dual media learners can practice the whole word contractions the, and, with, of, child, still, and to, with this game where the word is matched to the corresponding dot numbers in print or braille.

  • File folder
  • Adhesive braille labels
  • Velcro dots
  • Glue (glue sticks work the best)
  • Cut out the pieces and attach Velcro if desired. Several of the pieces are blank, so you can attach the braille symbols using braille labeling adhesive (I use the product from American Printing House).

*For durability you can laminate the folder and pieces (I would recommend using non-glare lamination). 

  • Download Cymbal Braille File Folder Game (Word document)
  • There is a Title page that can be cut out and glued to the front of the file for quick identification.  Glue the two sheets with the characters/symbols to the inside of the folder.

    • This packet also has an answer key and drumstick word cards.
  • Glue the two sheets with the characters/symbols to the inside of the folder.
