[Pibe-division] Contracted vs uncontracted

Why is it more important to teach uncontracted first then contracted?  Just asking from a transcriber - future TVI point.

I teach uncontracted until they can spell.  Or have phonics or sound-symbol down.  About third grade.

>>Hi Jackie:
>>The Department of Education in your state should have a website where you can find the curriculum and standards frameworks for all grade levels and subject areas.  If you look at the Kindergarten level, you will see what all Kindergarteners in your state are expected to learn during the school year.  In California, the Braille standards are the same as the state standards for all students in the public school system.  If you can't find the document for your state, let me know and I can send the California standards.  At least it would be something to guide you.

>>Hi Jackie. I am a braille teacher of 6 years. I teach high school, so I am forwarding your letter to Mrs. Woodson, who is my braille professor at New Orleans, La. I don't think much of kindergarten is spent on braille anyway. You will be given a large braille version, if you do. Mrs. Jeri Woodson will tell you what you need to know. cindy

>>I am confused as to your comment "I don't think much of Kindergarten is spent on braille". Well, of course it is! All the sighted children are learning how to read and write their print letters, and learning their sounds etc. So a blind student who needs braille also needs to be learning his/her letters in braille. A blind child should learn their literacy skills at the same rate as their sighted peers. The goal for braille is always to be on par with their classmates. In todays world of education, many kids are reading by the time they start first grade. Very different from 26 years ago when I first started teaching. Always aim high!
>>I also agree with checking out the TSBVI website - there is a wealth of information there. 
>>Welcome to the wonderful world of teaching braille!! What a joy to see fingers flying across a page.

>>Hi Jackie. I am a braille teacher of 6 years. I teach high school, so I am forwarding your letter to Mrs. Woodson, who is my braille professor at New Orleans, La. I don't think much of kindergarten is spent on braille anyway. You will be given a large braille version, if you do. Mrs. Jeri Woodson will tell you what you need to know. cindy
