Designed for young children ages 3-5 with autism and/or intellectual delays, The Caterpillar is an eight page adapted book (nine with cover) that comes in a printable .pdf file. This book would be fun to use during an insect unit and follows the life cycle of a butterfly/caterpillar. 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: caterpillar, nap, leaf, cocoon, slept, sun, awake, butterfly. More specific instructions are included for creating your adapted book to last several school years.
This book coordinates with my Caterpillar Vocabulary Folder Game for Special Education
This book is available in an Adapted Book bundle: Insect Adapted Book Bundle: 2 Insect 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.
