Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl is the focus of this literacy unit for students with autism and special learning needs. Have you ever wanted to read a novel to your special education students but thought, there is no way they will sit and listen? Persevere, it is worth it!! This 184 page unit on the novel Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is designed for students who have disabilities and special learning needs. I was always reading a novel to my students, regardless of their learning level. The lesson of learning to sit while someone is talking is an invaluable skill that is worth teaching.

This novel unit now comes with comprehension questions. There are 5 questions for each chapter. Each question has 3 picture answer choices. There is an answer key included.

This unit has various activities to accompany Roald Dahl’s book, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The materials were designed to allow students with multiple levels of learning to access and engage in lessons learned through listening to this novel. There are many opportunities for students to engage in repeated information on what happens to Charlie and his Grandpa Joe as they visit Willy Wonka’s famous chocolate factory. This repetition encourages deeper engagement of the book. Finally, many of the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory activities include more than one version, suggestions for differentiation, and options for presentation. There is an activity to go with each chapter as your students stay engaged while you read this novel aloud.

There are so many benefits to reading out loud to your students. You will teach them an invaluable skill of learning to sit still while someone else is talking. Your parents will also LOVE you for not only teaching them this skill of sitting but also for exposing them to age-appropriate material. Plus, you never know which students you will touch with each story you read.
