Sidewalk Chalk Braille

Finley's TVI (teacher for the vision impaired) has come up with a clever way to get Finley to do her homework each night.  (remember me telling you she was awesome?)

She and Finley came up with a list of all different things to do for homework.  "Read a book", "write your name five times in braille on the brailler", etc. etc.  And one - "write braille with sidewalk chalk".  They cut each task out and folded each paper in half and then put them in a bag.  EAch day, she is supposed to pull one paper out of the bag and that is what we day.

The one that came out today was "Sidewalk Chalk Braille"

She was very excited.  She even got our neighborhood kids involved.  They were excited to help.

I wrote the names of the kids (and the dogs) on the driveway, and then Finley drew the braille.  Then her friend (M) colored in the dots.  It was a lot of fun.

Finley drew the braille very fast, and not a single mistake.  She has it now.  I was impressed.

Here is her "art"

Finley wrote the braille, and then "M" colored them in:

All the kids played together in the yard today.  It was a beautiful day.  Cool, but not cold.  Sunny and breezy.  A great day to be outside.

Arlington and her friend (and neighbor) "C" spent the whole day together.  They are going as a duo for Halloween, so they worked on their costumes today.

The dogs even got in on the fun and chased each other around the yard.
