Pre-K at Play

Each year schools in Baltimore take one day from their busy school year and send their youngest children out on the town to observe organizations doing good work in the community.  Oriana Riccobono's teacher asked if the National Federation of the Blind would be willing to host her class.  Of course the answer was yes and the children spent more than two hours learning about how blind people do things that the children are accustomed to doing with vision.

There are hula hoops on the ground in patterns that represent the shapes of Braille cells, and the Pre-K children are standing in the hoops to match the print letters shown on the papers inside them.
