The Building on Patterns series addresses phonemic awareness (ability to hear and interpret sounds in speech), phonics (the association of written symbols with the sounds they represent), comprehension, fluency, and oral vocabulary.

This program also addresses specific skill areas needed by the child who is blind, such as language development, sound discrimination, tactual discrimination, and concept development. Braille contractions are introduced from the beginning along with sound and letter associations. Expanded Core Curriculum (ECC) skills such as using tactile graphics and technology are also included.


  • Braille taught and presented in a logical manner
  • Tactile graphics for teachers to explore with the student
  • Flexible activities designed to fit individual needs
  • Lesson Monitoring Sheets
  • Unit Check-ups/Assessments (includes timed tests)

Note: Each student kit includes Lesson Monitoring Sheets, Assessment Check-up Forms, Student Textbook, and Worksheets Pack.

BOP First Grade lessons require students to read selections themselves with emphasis on decoding skills, comprehension, and fluency. Creative writing, related to the reading selections, is included with each lesson. Spelling is based upon phonics skills. Worksheet packs, lesson monitoring sheets, and unit assessment packs are consumables and are also available separately.

Prerequisite: Building on Patterns: Kindergarten or equivalent skills.
