Have fun written in Braille


30 min3 participants

Tactile exploration to find a brick relating to the position of numbers 1 through 6 as indicated by the roll of dice.

Let's play!

Players taking turns:

  1. Roll the 2 dice and read the numbers.

  2. Find a brick with at least 2 of the dot numbers on your dice: i.e. roll a 2 and 5 - find a brick with at least dot 2 and dot 5 (G, H, Q, R…).

  3. Store the brick on your base plate.

  4. Roll doubles? Roll again.

  5. Keep playing until all players have at least 10 bricks.

How to prepare

  • 3 base plates

  • All the bricks

  • 2 dice

Give a base plate to each player.

Facilitation tips

  • Encourage light tactile exploration of the bricks, “Don’t try to crush them!”.

  • Confusion between dot’s position in the braille cell, how we represent numbers in braille and the number of dots in the constellation can be avoided by saying “dot 2” and not only “2”

Possible variations

  • Change the number of dice.

  • Change the rules: find bricks without the studs equal to the numbers rolled.

Children will develop these holistic skills

cognitive skills

  • Relate numbers 1 through 6 with braille cell positions/dot number

creative skills

  • Reproduce, assemble, organize, link graphic patterns and then create new ones

physical skills

  • Recognize and discriminate SHAPES by touch: Recognize and interpret tactually solid embossed shapes, outlines of objects, raised lines, raised symbols

emotional skills

  • Identify consequences of behaviors in social interactions

social skills

  • Understand, respect and enforce rules and regulations

Did you know?

  • Children need high-quality interactions with peers and adults for this learning to take place.

  • Young children show instances of regulating their thinking, feelings and behavior; they can stay focused during play, engage with peers, remember events, care for others and learn to wait for their turn.
