Spiderman-Themed Braille Book

spiderman cover page

This is a book my preschool braille learner and I created together. This student is very creative and comes up with some great stories. The book is about spiderman using yarn to create his "web".



  • Card Stock, Index Cards or Braille Paper
  • Yarn
  • Elmer's Glue
  • Brailler
  • Stapler
  • Markers


He is a beginning braille learner, so I had him tell me the story first and I wrote it down.  Then we went through and he decided what words he wanted to write.  He then brailled his chosen words on each page and I wrote the rest of the content of the story in print. We used white yarn to create the pictures for the book.
spider man page 1 - "Spider School / When Spiderman woke up he went" spiderman page 2 - "He was the coolest guy in the class"
spiderman page 3 - "No one else could shoot webs as good as him" Spiderman page 4 - "When he got off school, he had to fight the chuggernaute."
