Beginning Braille Tracking Worksheets to Emboss

M braille tracking sheet

Beginning braille readers need lots of practice tracking left to right and identifying braille cells that are the same or different.  I use the attached worksheets either in strips of a single line or two lines, half page, or full page. I have them track from left to right. Once they get this down, I then ask them to count the number of braille shapes they see on that line. Sometimes I do multiple braille symbols on the line to see if the student can find the same as the first braille symbol or which braille symbol is different.

These files can be modified just changing the letter or braille symbol the student is working on.
