This review card is designed to help students to independently match braille contractions to the uncontracted word. By using clothespins and a sturdy piece of cardboard, the student can do this task independently and it can be sent home as practice for homework. It has a secondary goal of helping to develop fine motor coordination. The student I made this for doesn’t have much hand strength, so this activity hopefully can help her with this.
- braille page with alphabet contractions spelled out in random order
- wooden clothespins (ones pictured are medium sized) with braille contractions on them
- Once the card and clothespins have been created, ask the students to match the braille contraction on the clothespin to the uncontracted word on the clothespin.
- other contraction combinations
