  • Thanks :)

  • Hi @AlemJaganjac , welcome

  • hello @LyndyG , welcome to this course

  • hi @LiseJ

  • Welcome to this learning space @RanaFriday

  • Welcome @KarenTaylor

  • Hi Anett!

  • Welcome to this learning space @MelissaMessenger

  • Thank you for being with us ;)

  • Totally agree, well said, thanks!

  • Awesome, so you were really to work with 3 different students. Like this idea!

  • yes, we also tried activities with a plate made à play dough, to offer more possibilities

  • it should always be adapted to the child, you are right!

  • I'm sure they will enjoy it!

  • You can also make your own with cardboard or recycled plastic

  • You are totally right. Each activity must be adapted to the level of the children doing it. Sometimes, you will need to make it easier, sometimes more difficult.

  • Yes, it is important to ask the kids why they do things and help them find solutions and strategies...

  • Go for it!

  • What a great example of facilitation!

  • that is also a solution, thanks for sharing!

  • Thanks for sharing!

  • Do not hesitate to share you ideas and creation! You can post on our Facebook or send a message at info@legobraillebricks. com.

  • The bricks were new: they are easier to replace once you have used them a little. Yes, the students love to use the brick separator. Remember that sighted people rely a lot on their vision to attach a brick. When you are blind, it takes more time and effort to perfectly adjust the elements you want to assemble.

  • Sorry but we cannot change the shapes or textures, as they are 2X4 LEGO bricks

  • Cool, you turned it into a memory game :)

  • Yes, you're right: several lessons may be necessary, progressing until you have acquired knowledge of the organisation of a Braille cell.

  • Multiple step activities are really interesting. You can always simplify or make them more difficult...

  • They had so much fun!!!

  • Great suggestion of a lesson plan, thanks!

  • Happy to read this is helpful.

  • just use some magnetic tape and stick a piece below the bricks. We tried and it works well. Some teachers found small round-magnets that you can insert inside the bricks' holes.

  • happy to read you liked it

  • Super suggestion, thanks!

  • He really enjoyed the moment :)

  • they can be so creative with these mini figures!!!

  • and they enjoy doing something similar to their peers.

  • Did you try these activities?

  • Great! Do not hesitate to share afterwards, on LEGO Braille Bricks community, Facebook

  • Great suggestion, thanks!

  • you're right, but these wire can be tricky to find, so we wanted to try with another solution :)

  • He is using the dots! he cannot see the colours, but he is reading really quickly in braille, and the video was edited.
