I am tutoring a student who is in first grade in Braille.  I 
don't tutor him every week, but once in a while.  I just met with 
him today and discovered that he loves music.  He played a music 
game with my mom, his mom, and I where you have to name the song.  
I figured that since he enjoys music so much, I would create a 
version of Don't Forget the Lyrics to play with him.  If you're 
not familiar with this, it used to be a tv show where the 
contestant had different categories such as seventies, love 
songs, country, etc and had a choice of two songs.  The 
contestant would then sing the song karaoke style and when the 
host stopped playing the music, the contestant would have to sing 
the next line.  It was a fun game.  We also played it at 
Highbrook this year, but when we did it, they just gave us the 
name of the song we were working with, played it for us on the 
ipad, and we could either say or sing the next line.  There were 
no categories, but they chose the songs for us based on the type 
of music we normally listen to.  I am therefore considering 
adopting this for him and his mom to play with us.  I'm just not 
sure how to adapt it to include Braille.  Do you have any ideas 
on how I could incorporate Braille into it? Even if it's not the 
exact game, I'd like to do something similar with him.  Any 
Thank you,
