Sensory Sun provides sensory-based curriculum, lesson plans, activities and resources for students who are visually impaired. They offer many of their resources for free to registered users, like a downloadable braille alphabet flipbook or a lesson plan teaching early learning words in braille for multiple grade levels.
The Sensory Sun blog also offers lots of hands-on ideas for teaching math, science and literacy... or even just fun accessible ways to celebrate the holidays and changing seasons.
Sensory Sun is also your go-to spot for accessible iPad and iPhone apps designed to make learning braille fun! Exploring Braille with Madilyn and Ruff helps kids learn their braille alphabet and Braille Bee moves learning forward by introducing spelling and contractions.
