This year I had a blind student in kindergarten. One of the table jobs the class did each week was cut out pictures of objects beginning with the letter of the week and paste it on a page for an alphabet book. I developed a list of real objects, small and flat enough to be pasted in a book, for my student to use.
Each week he would cut out his real object and paste it onto a piece of braille paper. At the end of the year, I put the pages in a large-ring binder. It was a wonderful book for him.
As an outgrowth of that list, I expanded to a listing of real objects that would fit in a manipulative tub. From there, I added body parts, actions, animals, concepts of position, foods and things (too big for a book or tub). Terri Bohling - TBohlingVI@aol.com.
