Adapted Book: WHAT IS AT THE ZOO – Special Education Resource for Reading
What’s an adapted book?
An adapted book is an interactive activity which allows students to pair new or familiar vocabulary with pictures on a variety of topics. ALL of the adapted books in this series focus on intensive practice for beginning reading skills only. Math counting skills are not included in this adapted book.
How, Where, and Why should I use adapted books in my classroom?
Adapted books offer so many benefits for our special needs students! For our children who are learning basic reading skills, they can match the pictures as the teacher or assistant reads the sentence aloud. This boosts confidence and fosters reading skills, as the real life and colorful pictures capture our students’ attention.
· Add an adapted book to your Reading Center.
· For children who have basic reading skills mastered, add an adapted book to their Independent Work Bins.
· Offer as an “extra” reading activity during morning work, or free time.
What’s included in each of the adapted book series?
· Each adapted book contains EIGHT pages with EIGHT Picture Response Cards and EIGHT Picture/Word Response Cards. I chose eight objects, people, or events that relate most closely to the adapted book topic. This purchase contains ONE adapted book. They may also be purchased as pre-made bundles (Bundle #1 and Bundle #2).
· Suggested IEP Goals and classroom usage
Is this sold in a bundle so I can get extra savings?
YES! This adapted book, “WHAT IS AT THE ZOO”, is available as part of BUNDLE 1 , which contains TEN adapted books for HUGE savings!
Will you include suggested IEP Goals with the Adapted Books?
YES! As with almost all of Autism Educators activities, IEP goals ARE included! Here are a few samples:
· Given a repetitive sentence starter and a picture related to a topic, STUDENT will read to match the correct picture, or picture/word card, with 80% accuracy, in 4 out of 5 opportunities, by MONTH, YEAR.
· Given a picture related to a topic, object, or person within a specific category, STUDENT will match the identical picture, with 80% accuracy, in 4 out of 5 opportunities, by MONTH, YEAR.
· Given a picture and an incomplete sentence, STUDENT will read the text in order to match the correct picture, or picture/word card to complete the sentence, with 80% accuracy, in 4 out of 5 opportunities, by MONTH, YEAR.
· Given a picture and a sentence with a word missing, STUDENT will refer to the picture to determine the missing word, with 80% accuracy, in 4 out of 5 opportunities, by MONTH, YEAR.
Can I suggest new adapted book topics?
Oh, YES, please! I love hearing from you! I’ll do my best to meet your student’s learning needs. That’s what it’s all about!
Can I share this set with other teachers or therapists?
Due to copyright laws and protection, please encourage teammates to purchase a set of their own. I try to keep costs as low as I can to make our products affordable for those in the teaching professions. I’m a teacher, too, and how limited budgets can be.
