Building on Patterns: Primary Braille Literacy Program: Second Grade: Unit 6 Student Kit - UEB
Building on Patterns (BOP) is a complete primary literacy program designed to teach beginning braille users all language arts -- reading, writing, and spelling.
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, all of which have been identified as important for reading instruction.
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.
BOP Second Grade builds on the components of BOP First Grade and contains additional activities.
- Timed reading in each lesson
- More independent reading suggestions
- Simplified lesson monitoring sheets
- Quick Read for silent reading and reading comprehension practice
- Special section with information on individual contributors (authors, illustrators, etc.) to BOP in each unit
BOP Second Grade includes more worksheets, part-word braille contractions, and other remaining literary contractions and symbols along with the rules to use them. The curriculum also emphasizes syllables and multisyllabic words, and the effect of certain letter combinations on vowel sounds. For optional map work, each lesson gives the foreign origin of at least one spelling word.
Recommended ages: 7 to 8 years and up.
Prerequisite: BOP First Grade or equivalent skills.
Note: Each student kit includes Lesson Monitoring Sheets, Consumable Unit Assessment Packet, Student Textbooks, and Worksheets Pack.
