- Stickers from Hobby Lobby or Michaels Craft Store
- Spacing - square
- Capitals - star
- Punctuation - triangle
- Spelling - heart (also to include when a word could be contracted)
Yes makes total sense! Madilyn always comprehends so much more when she's included too!
There was no specific reason for choosing the shapes for the correction identifiers. I let the student choose what they wanted to use for the different correction identifiers. I thought if the student helped create the system, they might be more willing to use it AND learn it faster. Make sense?
Thanks for sharing this tactile editing idea, Liz! I've been searching for the best wat to adapt Braille sentences/ passages for proofreading. I'm going to use the foam stickers (which I already have!) and was wondering if there were specific reasons you picked the shapes for certain correction identifiers? I.e. Did you pick the triangle to be punctuation for a particular reason?
First let me apologize. I should have referenced this post on indicator dots: http://www.pathstoliteracy.org/resources/indicator-dots. I use the plastic bendable folders you can buy for a dollar or less. I then trim them down to a size I like. I put the stickers on them after peeling off the backs. This way the student can access the cards easily and are more efficient in their work. These stickers come off easily and can be repositioned on the paper. If they make an error, they can fix it. I like this as the push pin method that I was taught wound up with stabbed little fingers or they could tell where something was answered before...rendering the sheet unusable for review use. The dots will fall off if not treated well. For instance, shoving the page in a bag to check later. Does this answer your questions?
Text coding is always challenging for Braille students especially in high school. My question is this: What did you put the stickers on? Did you peel the backing off each on and stick them to a sticky card of some sort? Will they then be able stick to his/her work without falling off? Thank Uou!
