This CORE vocabulary emergent reader was created to bring the joy of nursery rhymes to all students. 

Our versions of these classic rhymes have been adapted based on a selection of core vocabulary (sight words), or the highest frequency words in speech and writing. Remarkably, these seemingly simple words make up roughly 80% of what we say! 

This simplified version has been re-written by an SLP (Speech and Language Pathologist) and is designed to build LANGUAGE, READING, AND READING COMPREHENSION.

Reading this familiar tale helps to build confidence and expand students' reading and comprehension skills. Students can experience and retell this treasured tale in a whole new way.

I have printed and laminated The Itsy Bitsy Spider and used it with my small group literacy lesson. They loved it and it kept their interest.
Thank you for this resource.

What Other Special Educators Are Saying About Us

Once again the girls at AdaptEd 4 Special Ed have knocked it out of the park. These products can be used for all of my students despite the varied skill levels as they are easily adapted for different skill sets. I just love these products. My special education teachers have even started asking about where to find them.

- Nicole D.

I love how students can practice their personal information in such a fun and exciting way! This is a must have for every low incidence classroom! This has inspired me to add this as an IEP goal for my young low incidence students.

- Ashley I.

Your asking questions packets are genius. This is such a hard skill and I am super excited to print these packs (I bought a few!) to add to my classroom. Thank you for the clever products!

- Shawn S.

These books have been so helpful with my students with special needs. They take me a while to make - but so worth it. The topics are great - useful and relevant. Thank you!
