Designed for young children ages 3-5 with autism and/or intellectual delays, Five Little Sea Creatures is a six page adapted book (seven with cover) that comes in a printable .pdf file. This book would be fun to use during a sea animal/wild animal unit or to reinforce number vocabulary. 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: starfish, sea horse, octopus, jellyfish, dolphin. More specific instructions are included for creating your adapted book to last several school years.
This book is available as part of an ocean themed adapted book bundle here: Ocean 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 for the unique learners in your life.
