Building on Patterns: Primary Braille Literacy Program, First Grade, Unit 6 Animal Shapes and Pages Set
This entertaining and educational animal crackers puzzle was developed from page 51 in the student text, “More Animal Tales,” in BOP First Grade, Unit 6, Lesson 33. It includes four copies of the page with nests and four sets of INEDIBLE animal shapes that fit the nests. Each sheet contains nests for 13 different animals. The name of each animal is given in braille, and a tactile symbol before it shows the direction the animal is facing, i.e. < nose to the left or > nose to the right.
If appropriate for your student, you can use real animal crackers with this product, which will help children connect the real thing with the activity and may be more motivational than using the inedible shapes. Later, use the pretend animal crackers to play with the nests when the real ones are gone. Be sure that children understand that these pretend crackers cannot be eaten.
