How much time...probably a couple hours. I didn't really keep track. The hardest part for me was writing the "stories" and then finding the images for them. Had to rewrite a couple so I could include a better picture. I do not have a brailliest, so I brailled 8 books one weekend and 5 the next. Trimming the books and binding them took more time then brailling them. Yes, I think the parent will follow through as she has been great over the school year completing the homework I've been sending home. My expectations of the student is that we can pick up where we left off without reteaching...or minimal if needed. I'll be creating a test to see just how much reteaching (if any) will need to be done before we get back into the curriculum.
This is so cool! I wish I'd have seen this last week as I would have done this for my three braille students. I can tell you put a lot of thought (and time) into this. How much time did you spend on this? Do you think the parent will follow through? What are your expectations of the student when they return in the fall?
