We learned about child inventor, Louis Braille. Using just Six Dots, he invented an easy way for the blind to read and write. The book Six Dots by Jennifer Bryant includes the Braille alphabet, punctuation marks, and numbers. Using this guide, students wrote their names onto a template by filling in dots. To make this three dimensional, add a drop of glue and let it dry. Thank you to the Arlington Heights Memorial Library for providing braille books to our community.
