Roll and Read

Engage beginning readers in this reading game for braille users and their friends!

The Roll and Read activity is great for increasing reading accuracy and fluency. 


  • braille paper
  • puffy paint
  • dice


  • Students read and re-read six sentences or word sets on a sheet prepared by the teacher.
  • The student rolls the dice and reads the item that corresponds with the number on the sheet.
  • This activity can be made using word family sets such as the “ea” pattern, vowel patterns such as the short “i”, or high frequency words. 
  • The teacher can work on the activity as a one-on one guided practice with the student, or students can work in pairs, taking turns rolling the dice and reading the corresponding sentence or word.
  • The print and the braille on the Roll and Read sheet allow all types of learners to participate in the activity.
