Braille Game

Posted by Jody under: Home .

What you’ll need:
Braille alphabet chart
26 cards cut 2″ x 3″
Hole punch
Zip lock bag

Background:
This game is a great fun way for your child and a friend to learn the Braille alphabet. Once they master the letters, they can then use the game cards to construct and read words.

What to do:
1. Use the Braille alphabet chart to determine the placement of dots at the top of each card.
2. Punch out the dots with the hole punch.
3. Print the letter on the back of each card.

Rules of play:
1. Two players sit facing each other. Between them is the deck of cards, front side up.
2. One player draws a card and shows the front of it to the other player. The second player must identify the letter. If correct, the second player keeps that card. If incorrect, the card goes to the bottom of the deck to be played again.
3. Players take turns showing and identifying letters. The winner names the most letters correctly.

Other uses
1. Players follow basic rules above, but put on a blindfold and identify letters by touch, rather than by sight.
2. Make 36 cards, one of each consonant and three of each vowel. Deal out all cards to two players. Players take turns laying down cards to make words until one player runs out of cards. Award one point for three- or four-letter words, two points for five-letter words, three points for words with six or more letters.
