Qui est Louis Braille?

113 0

Students in Grade 1/2 are currently working on a unit of inquiry that focuses on non-verbal communication. Last week, we learned about the creation of Braille, started by Louis Braille in 1894. Based on the French alphabet, Braille created a writing system as an improvement to night writing. Once we learned about the Braille alphabet, we practiced writing our names and other words in Braille. Using 3D paint, we covered up the Braille letter patterns to create a raised texture so we could feel the bumps. Then, we tried reading them with our finger tips and guessing the word!

About The Author

My name is Shannon Neill and I am currently the Grade 1/2 teacher at AcadeCap. I began my teaching career in 2017 after graduating from McGill University with a Bachelor’s of Education, specialized in French Immersion Pedagogy. Since my first year of teaching, I have been working with Grade 1 and 2 students, from Montreal, to Winnipeg, and now Ottawa, where I have been with AcadeCap since 2018. Working with students in Grade 1 and 2 is definitely something special. The students are curious, honest and so willing to learn and share - I consider myself pretty lucky to be able to learn from my students every day!
