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 2 interactive books to go along with Halloween for the month of October. Each book has a repetitive sentence with up to 10 pages in each book with interactive icons.
Book one is "How to make a Jack-o-Lantern" with the different steps on making a Jack-o-Lantern for Halloween.
Book two is "Where is the Jack-o-Lantern" with different positional words and where to put the pumpkin in regards to the wagon.
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!
