Braille's Vowel Game
Activity from the the Kindergarten Project
of Colégio Magno/Mágico de Oz
Kindergarten students - 4 to 5 years old
We have chosen to speak about vision loss. Our students got curious to know how blind children and adults learn how to read and write.
ur Kindergarten students visited a Second Grade class that was studying the subject and had already visited the Dorina Nowill Foundation.
While sharing their experience, the Second Grade students told how blind people can read, move trough places and identify people. So, we decided to create the game Braille Vowels, associating the sound of the letters with the corresponding images.
As they already frequently use the Scratch Jr and Makey Makey at Technology classes, they recorded and programmed, with the teacher's assistance, the sounds of the vowels and the related words on Scratch and Makey Makey in order to create an interactive game.
