Braille Art

Easter braille art

Are you looking for fun ways to encourage your students to practice their braille skills?  Try these ideas from Sherry D. Lyle from New Mexico School for the Blind and Visually Impaired.  The designs use braille letters and contractions to create pictures, such as a duck in water, an alien monster, and a large ear of corn.

It's 60 pages long, so you'll need to scroll through and find the ones that you think would be best for your students.

What a cute idea, although I'm having a little difficulty finding the designs of the duck, the monster, and the corn.  Do I click on the underlined words, "these ideas?"  Where do I go from there?  Thanks so much.  My students will love this activity!
