Eric Carle Adapted Books and More - downloads for you!

A while back, I wrote this post about how to adapt books for students with special education. I've had some requests lately to share some symbols with you so you can create your own, and of course I will!! I have linked the book to Amazon, sometimes you can find great deals, especially used, but of course, it's better if you already have it or can find it at a thrift store of something!

Book: Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear? by Eric Carle
Symbols: Adapted Symbols for Polar Bear...+ pictures of the book for adapted pieces (I just copied one of the pictures from the google image, pasted in word and enlarged to an appropriate size)

Book: The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle
Symbols: Adapted Symbols for The Very Hungry Caterpillar + pictures for adapted pieces (same method to use these as Polar Bear...). You'll also notice pages, such as the one pictured don't include all of the words, rather it simplifies it to "Wednesday, 3 plums."

Book: The Way I Feel by Janan Cain 
Symbols: Adapted Symbols for The Way I Feel - These are an added sentence for each page that follows the same format, "I feel ____ when ...."

Book: Frog's Lunch by Dee Lillegard
Symbols: Adapted Symbols for Frog's Lunch

Book: Dinosaur Days (Step into Reading) by Joyce Milton
Symbols: Adapted Symbols for Dinosaur Days - This one was created by one of my awesome paraprofessionals, John, who was kind enough to send this to me so I could share it with you! It has a sentence for each page, like a summary, as there are a lot of words on this one.

Want more? Be sure to check out this post for more symbols to add to existing books!

September Currently

Listening: On the phone with AT&T, trying to figure out our internet pricing after our 1 year promo was up. Not too much fun. But it all worked out in the end. Ask to speak with their customer representative service department (or something like that) and they can give you way more deals than the billing department, We ended up paying $2 more a month and get twice the internet speed. A lot better than the $20 more a month that showed up on my bill!

Loving: Once a month, we have teacher planning time in the morning for an hour and a half. It's amazing what I can get done in this time...and it's also amazing how quickly the time goes by!

Thinking: I've loving feeling more prepared and organized this year. My TpT store has motivated me to do a lot of work this summer and I'm feeling more organized because of it! Plus I've built up materials and resources over the last couple of years so that's going well.

Wanting: These no-bake cookies. Now. They are delicious.

Needing: I have students with some severe needs and issues going on, both at home and at school. I just want to fix it all and come up with the "magic" solution. It's never as easy as I hope, but I'm so motivated!

3 trips: I know these are slightly random but I've really always wanted to go to Italy, India, and Hawaii.

So what's up with you currently? :)
