Orange Pumpkin Book---Revised; Get Ready for Halloween!
Back in 2012, I found an awesome Halloween book on Tarheel Reader, and after adding interactive icons, put it up on my blog. It has been a huge hit, and when I was working in the schools, my students read it year after year. Today, I decided to actually look at the book and my blog entry. I still liked it, but when I took a look at the photo credits on Tarheel Reader, I found that some of the photographers had changed their usage rights, or had removed the photos. In addition, back in 2012, I knew very little about copyright laws and image use. The bottom line--I've revised the book using Photos for Class or provided a link back to the photo website (provided the photographer allows use of the photo in the first place). I'll be taking down my original book.
The book is the same pattern, but some images are changed. I also changed the font to make it more child friendly.
There are also the same icons as previously, both in Boardmaker and as a pdf.
For those of you who don't know about adapting books, I like to print out and laminate the pages including the icons. The kids can match colors and item pictures to the book as it's read to them, or as they read it themselves.
