BELL Saturday School #1
Today was the first day of BELL camp 2012. Students got to wish each other a happy new year, and remember the reason for the BELL Camp. In blindness lesson, we remembered Louis Braille’s birthday of January 4, 1809, and they got to watch the neat BELL video they were such movie stars in. In Reading students learned and read cool Valentine’s Day quotes. Writing class focused on Brailing Valentine’s day words. In Nonvisual class, students played a cool video computer game involving race cars. In extracurricular students practiced art skills in cutting out hearts, and drawing hearts with their Braille writers.
Today’s lunch was a sandwich, assorted fruits, and snacks. For recess we exercised to keep our wonderful hearts healthy. Our Special Guest Reader was Judy, a nice woman who works for the IRS, and a Braille reader. The Group Activity involved celebrating the birthday of the coolest person regarding Braille. The students were able to bang away on a piñata. We had fun with our mentors during Journal writing time. In our BELL Ringers, many positive experiences were shared with the group. One student cut her first heart out of construction paper, and others learned to play a cool computer game.
