Designed for young children ages 3-5 with autism and/or intellectual delays, Being A Good Listener is an ten page adapted book (eleven with cover) that comes in a printable .pdf file. This book would be great for the beginning of the school year when you're teaching classroom expectations. It features the ingredients for whole body listening with illustrations to help visual learners. This book had two pages for the "sitting" part of whole body listening -- one is sitting criss cross on the floor, the other is sitting at a desk. Print only the page that is appropriate for your class.
Once printed, I suggest you laminate the individual pages for reading. I've also included matching pieces for vocabulary words I have chosen to highlight in the text. This book focuses on the fringe words: criss cross, desk, listen, watch, quiet, think, feet, body, heart, desk. More specific instructions are included for creating your adapted book to last several school years.
This book coordinates with my Emotions Vocabulary Folder Game for students with Autism
This book is also available as part of my Social Stories Adapted Book Bundle: 8 Adapted Books
Adapted books would also be good resources for any young learner, an early childhood special education classroom, simple literacy or math centers for preschool and prekindergarten classrooms and home schoolers who are teaching students with unique abilities. Because the principles of teaching vocabulary are very similar for both language delayed children with special needs and new English learners, my books are also an excellent resource for an ELL/ELD/EFL classroom for young children. Created by Miss Kim Designs for the unique learners in your life.
