Days of the week months of the year print and digital activities for Special Ed


This unit on the days of the week and months of the year contains 150 pages and 64 google slides of material specifically designed for students with special learning needs, especially autism, and is perfect for back to school. This unit addresses basic calendar and schedule skills in a simplified but rigorous way for students with diverse learning needs to make meaningful and authentic connections to the material. There are many opportunities for students to engage in repeated information on days of the week and months of the year. This repetition encourages a true understanding of time, days of the week, and months of the year. In addition, many of the activities include more than one version, suggestions for differentiation, and options for presentation. Finally, there is a social story on having a daily schedule and dealing with changes in your schedule to help build more personal connections to the content.

****This unit now contains digital versions of the printable activities. There are 64 google slides and a movie version of each book.

See the preview for a detailed look at the contents.

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, we can ask students questions that will push them to think more deeply than before.
