Wear dots…raise lots: Inspire sighted children to learn about braille
Tuesday, 4 October 2016
This October, RNIB is asking schools to ‘Wear dots…raise lots’, by encouraging children to learn about braille while dressing in dotty clothing.
As part of the month-long campaign, RNIB’s Wear dots team have developed curriculum-relevant lesson plans for Early Years Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 to 4, which you can use to inspire your students to learn about vision impairment and braille.
You can request a fundraising activity pack, which contains cards showing the alphabet in braille and special simulation glasses to give students an understanding of how vision impairment can affect every aspect of a person’s life.
The team have also produced a short film to encourage teachers to get involved. See how Freddy and his teacher use the lesson plans and resources in their class:
