- Appropriate Etiquette: Stay by the cart, don't "lurch" and grab everything, touch gently, don't rip off tags, etc.
- Accessibility: Accessible grocery lists (braille, objects etc.), giving him explanations of the environment including layout of the store, items for sale and people that are in the store to work and shop.
- Concept Development: Why do we grocery shop? What is in a grocery store? Why do we have to pay for our items? The process of planning a grocery trip, etc.
- 2 magnetic boards that can be removed from the wall (I hung ours on the inside of the pantry door, so it wouldn't be easily knocked down.)
- Staple food items written in braille (things you buy most often) placed onto magnetic strips
- Move items (food items placed on magnetic strips) from the "Food Board" to the "We Need to Buy" board when we run out.
- Continue to add items to the "We Need to Buy" board until it is time to go grocery shopping.
- When it's time to go shopping, bring the "We Need to Buy Board" to the table next to the brailler and type out a "paper copy" of the list using the magnetic board list. Clear the magnetic list to use again for next time.
- Attach the paper braille list to a clipboard to bring to the store!
