Mrs. Lauria from Staten Island NY is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Adapted Books For All Learners!

My students need materials, such as laminating pouches and Velcro dots, to create adapted books specific to their educational needs for Read Aloud, Math, and Literacy.

My Students

I work with Kindergarten children classified with Autism. Imagine someone reading a picture book to you in a different language. You hear them talking, you see the pictures, but you have no idea what they are saying. That is the difficulty my children face everyday when I read to them.

Adapted books will help my students get the most out of their education.

They watch me read a book and at times point to pictures when asked. They appear to be engaged, but that engagement only lasts a few minutes. These adapted books will allow me to tailor common Read Aloud books (i.e. The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Brown Bear Brown Bear, etc.) to their instructional levels. They can be made to be interactive to promote independent reading and check for comprehension.

My Project

These materials will be used to create adapted books for my classroom library. These books will range from adapting common Read Aloud books (i.e. The Very Hungry Caterpillar) to basic concept books (i.e. shapes, transportation, counting, etc.), to teaching core vocabulary to help promote communication. The adapted books can also be made interactive to promote independent reading and check for comprehension.

These books will be adapted based on the students' learning level and will help them focus and attend during Read Aloud.

For durability, the adapted books have to be laminated and bound. The velcro pieces allow the students to interact with the story.
