Materials needed: TACK-TILES® Braille
Systems, any Braille code version.
Skills targeted: Braille code, memory
Setup: Construct rows of TT on a large
support slate while including in these rows repetitions of the
same pattern of three Braille signs. Braille a piece of paper
with the same patterns, not necessarily in the same relative locations.
Procedure: Have the student examine the
TACK-TILES® al long and as deliberately as needed to discover
the repeated pattern. Have the student identify the row, the pattern
and the number of repetitions per row (if any). Then have the
student, using the best Braille technique at hand do the same
on the paper. While the student works on paper the teacher rebuilds
the TACK-TILES® support slate.
In an advanced application with a student
who needs challenge, the pattern might be: "in," "in,"
an ever changing random Braille character followed by "en."
As long as the student already understands or can easily seize
understanding that the pattern is subject to random interruption
while still maintaining integrity this is a fair challenging lesson
