Interactive adaptive books are great for emerging readers, with limited reading abilities as well as for students with Autism, Intellectual Disabilities and for students with low vision as the pictures are large, clear, and bright.
In this set, you get 1 colored interactive adaptive book that works on counting 1-10. This book has a repetitive sentence, "How Many?" with 10 pages with 10 interactive number icons to go with the corresponding page.
You will also get the same interactive book but in black and white. This can be used for independent work or in small groups. Just simply print the book, staple together, and cut out the numbers. Students can then go through each page counting (1-10), coloring and glueing the correct number on the page.
Great for students to practice independently, with guided help or 1:1 with more severe disabilities.
What is an adaptive/interactive book?
It is any book that has been modified in some way to make it more accessible to a student who is struggling with typical books. Examples may be: simplified text, age appropriate text adaptations, tactile additions, pictures/pages simplified and not overly busy, braille, contain die cut pieces or a story board with Velcro for the student to interact with on each page.
Who are adaptive/interactive books used for?
Adaptive or interactive books are great for students with special needs, struggling readers in a regular education classroom (ie use in centers or during read-to-self where a struggling reader may not be ready to read independently), ELL students or an Early Childhood classroom. I have many readers who are below grade level but can read past a kindergarten level who love to use these books and interact with them as well! I like to put a tub of them in my reading corner that are seasonal and switch out each month!
