Designed for young children ages 3-5 with autism and/or intellectual delays, Five Little Pumpkins is an eight page adapted book (nine with cover) that comes in a printable .pdf file. This book is a seasonal book to help introduce young students to pumpkins and fall. Unlike the traditional rhyme, I do not include "witches in the air" but replaced that phrase with "leaves in the air" to make the book more fall themed than Halloween themed because I know some schools do not celebrate Halloween.
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: pumpkin, late, leaves, don't, run, fun, wind, roll. More specific instructions are included for creating your adapted book to last several school years.
This books is available as part of a Halloween adapted book bundle here: Halloween Adapted Book Bundle: 2 Adapted Books for Children with Autism
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* a store for the unique learners in your life.
