Third Graders at Mintonye learn Braille
Kristy Delp

Last week third graders in Mrs. Clevenger's class at Mintonye Elementary were visited by Mrs. Kathy Nimmer and her dog, Tate. Mrs. Nimmer taught the students about the Braille alphabet and then asked them to think of a wintery word that they would like to write in Braille. Students first drew the dots that made up each Braille letter in the word they had chosen. Then, they glued buttons over the dots to create a raised surface for their letters that mimicked Braille. Mrs. Clevenger's students were most excited when Mrs. Nimmer read the Braille word each student created!
