Visually Impaired Classroom (Mrs. Bernice Colon and Mrs. Kim Kurlin)

Visually Impaired Classroom

I visited a classroom last week in my school, it was not a regular class, the students were working, and laughing all the time, and I was delighted with all their beautiful work. I could not resist taking some pictures of this special group of kids.

I am pleased to share a new side of my website, the work of Visually Impaired Multihandicapped students.

The following materials were prepared by blind students who use their sense of touch, smell and taste to produce their work. See all the things that they can do!

Special thanks to their teachers Mrs. Bernice Colon and Kim Kurlin for allowing us to share this with you.

The Very Hungry Carterpillar.
The 3 Little Pigs: Three different houses were made out of Popsicle sticks (wood). Straw and card board bricks. The pig has a velcro strip on the back so that the student can select which house they want to put the pig inside. The number 3 is made out of beans to add tactile input.
Green Eggs and Ham
Foan stickers were used to identify different sizes on a divided piece of construction paper.
The Fall Tree is made out of recycled packaging paper on the trunk and students finger pointed leaves glued on to a foam board in shape of a tree.
