Story Boxes for Visually Impaired Students

Help me give my students story boxes. These are boxes full of objects that go along with a book. Fun and exciting for the visually impaired child when they can hold the object and act out the story!

My Students

I work with a unique population who are visually impaired as well as students with combined vision and hearing impairments. Not all of my students are totally blind and totally deaf. Most of my students who are DeafBlind have some residual vision and hearing but need that extra help to bridge information from the environment around them to themselves. My students love to read and learn. They love to put their hands on everything in order to learn about their world! I love to give them that information to help them learn about their world through these books.

My Project

Story boxes for students with visual impairments are essential and bring the story to life; they make it meaningful, real, and interesting. Story boxes are essential when teaching students with visual impairments, and they are a critical support to students with dual sensory loss. These items are all in the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. The students will be given the object to hold when the story is told. They will be able to listen, act out, and understand the story better. My students love these story boxes.

Just a note to donors: I do try to use real objects first but would really like to have objects that go with the story for my students that already understand what the objects are in the story.
