Christmas Digital Unit for Special Education | Distance Learning


46 google slides plus 2 movies


This DIGITAL unit on Christmas combines Christmas math and Christmas ELA activities that are specifically designed for students with autism and special learning needs. Each google slide comes in a second version that is differentiated either with color or other method to support students who need more structure to work independently.

Much of what I have learned about curriculum development is incorporated in these units. For example, do not be afraid of repetition. It is critical that students with significant disabilities get to experience material over several days to be able to fully assimilate what is being taught. Also, adding visual supports to your printables and class activities helps students be able to pay more attention to the content you are presenting rather than the mechanics of what is expected. Finally, ask questions. Good questions!! Regardless of the material, if we can ask students good questions it will push them to think more deeply than before.

As always please take a moment to leave feedback or post any questions you may have. 

I am currently developing more units, and any feedback I get helps me make improvements in the future. Plus, it just means a lot to me.
