Kosciuszko Students Learn about the Blind

Kosciuszko

At Kosciuszko school, the fifth graders have been learning about the lives of people who are blind. The students started by learning the selection Mom's Best Friend by Sally Hobart Alexander.  The students then handled and looked through the Braille versions of Matilda and Charlotte’s Web. The kids then visited BrailleBug.org.  However, the study of people with visual impairments was not complete.  

Two people helped the students gain more insights into the daily lives of people who are blind.  
 
Elizabeth Abelson, daughter of Mrs. Abelson, is a teacher who works with students who have visual difficulties.  In addition to sending a Braille deck of cards and the two Braille books, she also sent the students a copy of their own name in Braille.  Not only could they see their name, but they felt the raised dots and examined the way the dots are organized to make letters.
 
At a recent visit, Charlotte Gotz, the sub caller for our school district, talked to the fifth graders about her life being blind.  She spoke of raising her children, her training at The Seeing Eye, a school that partners and trains people and their dog guides, and her challenges and successes in passing The Casey Law.

“I am amazed how blind people can memorize and read Braille,” said Emily, a fifth grade Kozy student.

Space Movies

Kosciuszko

As part of their science unit on space, third grade students at Kosciuszko School worked in groups to create short documentaries about one of three topics: solar eclipses, lunar eclipses, or phases of the moon. Student groups needed to write the movie and then determine the best way to film it using digital camcorders.  Once filmed, the students edited the scenes of their movies together using a computer.

In the process, students were able to better conceptualize these solar phenomena, enhance their critical thinking skills, learn how to work well in groups, and increase their comfort with technology all while having fun.
