This is an adorable adapted book for use with young children or those with special needs. It has predicable lines for repeated readings and can be used year round. There are smaller baby hedgehogs (hoglets) along with numerals and number words to use in matching to the pages. You can velcro the pages and match that way and it makes a good literacy activity for some of our special needs population. I have blue dotted the pages where the velcro should go in hopes of simplifying this process. Examples of ways to use this book include targeting number concepts, sight words for numbers 1-5, one to one correspondence, and print concepts of reading top to bottom and left to right. As you can see, this is adaptable for a wide range of students. This book can be used with an individual child or in a small group. As a speech language pathologist, I use these types of books regularly. I hope you are enjoying these samples. There will be more to come!!
