If you LOVED September’s adapted text- you are going to love October’s!
Adapting texts is a great way to get all of your students involved and participating with REAL literature. These books are often found in classroom libraries, general education classrooms, and beyond. It is a great idea to start an adapted book library in order to get your students more involved during read alouds and more interested in picture books!
Apples and Pumpkins By: Anne Rockwell and Illustrated by: Lizzy Rockwell (affiliate link to book!) is one of my favorite simple text books. The way the author walks through the whole process of apple and pumpkin picking all the way up to carving and Halloween night is like a perfect social story for our kids! It has lots of vocabulary repetition and is definitely an easy reader- which is perfect for teaching October vocabulary, using as a read aloud, in small group, or to introduce more information about pumpkin patches before a community outing.
Before I was able to go on community outings, I would introduce books like this to give a virtual trip tour to my students. There are tons of videos on youtube (blog post coming soon!) and this is totally doable!
