Pizza Braille Game: Part-Word Contractions

This game is designed to reinforce part-word braille contractions with dual media learners.

Editor’s note:  Note that “ble” contraction is no longer used in UEB.


This file folder game can be used with low vision students who are beginning to learn braille.   Dual media learners can practice part-word contractions using a pizza-themed game.  Additional worksheets are also provided.

The contractions in this game are:

  • ing
  • ed
  • er
  • ar
  • ow
  • ble
  • gh
  • ch
  • ou
  • th
  • sh
  • st
  • wh
  • 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). 

 

Preparation

  • Download Pizza Braille Game (PDF)
  • 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.
  • 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).

 

In this game the players match the dot numbers to the corresponding print contraction.  The dot numbers are on slices of pepperoni that the player places on the print contraction on the piece of pizza.  Blank pieces of pepperoni are included if you want to add images of the dot configurations.
