Adapted Interactive Books for Teaching Vocabulary - Autism Classroom Resources You know how much I love adapted and interactive books for teaching a variety of skills and to help in generalizing instruction from explicit instruction like discrete trials to a variety of other situations. I am working with a set of students who really need to work on all different facets of vocabulary, so I’ve been amping up my vocabulary-based activities. You may remember the freebie I posted a while back for identifying School Tools. This set of books is like those, only there are 3 of them and they are differentiated. The books are scaffolded so that the first one teaches just the label of the item, the second one teaches identifying items by one characteristic (feature, function, category) and the third teaches identifying items by 2 characteristics. Teaching vocabulary using a variety of materials and interventions is important to assure that students generalize their skills.

The same year, British writer George Nicol published a version in rhyme based upon Southey's prose tale, with Southey approving the attempt to bring the story more exposure.
