Print Notes for the Teacher
Some diagrams and maps are presented as tactile graphics. The interpretation and reading of a tactile graphic is a skill that must be taught to a braille reader. It is usually not an expectation at this grade level that a braille-reading student will be able to interpret a tactile graphic without assistance.
All answers, except for some graphic answers, are shown vertically.
Graphics of coins are not shown. The word name is used: Example; Test 3, Question 5 (dime dime dime dime dime).
Test 4: Question 5
Each = = 1 child
Test 5: Question 5
The word shoe replaces the pictures.
Test 8: Question 8
The words gray and black replaces the cats.

The * is replaced with a [triangle] in braille.
