St. Patrick’s Day Activity

This braille activity is a good way to celebrate St. Patrick's Day with children who are blind or visually impaired.

After meeting with the classroom teacher, I adapted some of the activities for Monday in a shamrock book format. The book is 5 pages. The cover is a glitter scrapbook page cut to the shape. Page 1 has 3 words relating to the day on it. Page 2 has pictures that relate to the day on it and the student will place braille labels on or near the picture it matches. Page 4 and 5 are drawing and collage pages. The collage page will be the student placing St. Patrick’s Day stickers on the page…filling it.
