I adapted The Three Little Pigs for a 16-year-old student who is deafblind, and functioning at the preschool level. My goal was to simplify it and tell it with more of a teen perspective.
- Poster board, as I didn’t have any cereal boxes to cut out from my recyclables this time. The top right-hand corner of each page has been cut out so that my student will be able to identify and orient the top of the page.
- Cutouts from a cardboard box
- Rubber bands
I used household items to help bring the concept of wolf, pig, straw, sticks, bricks, etc., come to life. I got poster board as it is stronger than paper, and easier to cut than cardboard. Instead of rings to bind the book pages, I used coated wire to enable easier page turns. The student does shake books sometimes, so I want the book to be somewhat strong. I will include print and braille on all pages.
