[nobe-l] how to adapt a game

Hmm, maybe you could braille the names of the songs and make the 
student pick from a braille list?  Or maybe make them write the 
word after you stop instead of continuing to sing?

Subject: [nobe-l] how to adapt a game

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,
