Every once in a while, I give my student a break from intersection analysis and street crossings and we have a fun lesson. In the past, our fun lessons have included cooking food, making art projects, playing with the Maps app, watching blind YouTubers, etc. This time, I decided to show my student a game app on the iPhone.

How to make your own Tactile Rubik’s Cube! Contributed by Kristen Sharpless, currently a Vision Rehab Master's student whose creative idea went viral!
After teaching my students the three characteristics of a good O&M landmark, it was time for them to identify on their own what can or can’t be a landmark. This lesson was a good way to make sure my students understood what landmarks are before going out into the community to look for real life landmarks.
Discuss devices such as songs, rhymes, and acronyms to aid memory (both teachers and students), to help make lessons fun and productive.
When I thought about modifying the classic game of Twister my main goal was to give all of my students a way to play a very visual game despite what their visual impairment is (and who doesn’t love a good round of Twister?!).
I am visually impaired and had O&M instruction very infrequently as a child. As a result of this, I had gaps in my skills when I went away to graduate school. I discussed the problem with my instructor who devised this creative lesson.
For our first lesson this year, I had my students write out what they hope for this year.
