Learning from Others!

Our class recently read a book together. In this book there was a girl who was deaf. The book did such a good job showing inclusion and how education can look differently. I am so lucky to have a Braille program at our school so I asked my co-worker I she could possibly come in a tell us about he things our blind student does is school. She was more than happy to! Not only that, but we turned it into a peer teaching opportunity and the blind student was able to teach our class himself! He did so good reading and typing braille. He also showed us how he adds on an abacus and showed us a fun braille jumping game. My class loved it!

It was so cool to see my students being so inclusive and supportive to their classmate.
