Braille Letter Search Sheets

I have a student who has just started learning braille. We're working on letters right now, and she has a few reversals, as well as some difficulty with page orientation. Her tracking of a line is good until you add in multiple lines. I created some letter search sheets to give her practice with letter identification, as well as tracking lines on a page when there are multiple lines of braille.

The sheets are based on worksheets that are being done in her classroom. She must find the letter that is indicated in the box on the sheet. Once she finds the letter, she puts an indicator dot by it.  There are 10 letters per line (except where the box is) and 13 lines per page. I choose the letters based on the student's reversal history, as well as their errors they make when they read.

You'll notice I also have a ruler on the page. This helps my student keep her place while she's reaching for the indicator dots. She also uses this to help her in tracking her lines. Once she gets more sure of herself, I will "hide" the ruler.
