Abi loves Teacher Daniel, the itinerant Braille teacher who comes twice a week. He teaches in a patient, relaxed style that makes learning easy. He makes up little stories and poems to entice her to read.
Following his lead, I made her a little poem that she could read all by herself.
"Abi can go to the park
Abi can go like a shark
Abi can go with a lark
Abi can not go in the dark"
The problem comes when the stuff she is given to read comes out of the computer making no sense. As I posted today on Facebook:
Maybe this is why Braille is hard for kids to read.
This is one of Abi's school worksheets. The Braille says:
"Color each shape"
"rer" "yellow" "gre:" "blue"
Tell me, if your kid's worksheet came home from school with the directions printed this weird, would you be okay with it?
