Fall Unit for Special Education with DIGITAL activities | Distance Learning


Total Pages 115 plus 13 google slides
Answer Key Included
Teaching Duration 1 Week


This Fall Unit contains over 100 pages of material specifically designed for students with special learning needs, especially autism PLUS 13 google slides. This unit on the season of fall addresses the characteristics of fall in a simplified but rigorous way for students with diverse learning needs to make meaningful and authentic connections to the material whether learning about fall, winter, spring, or summer. There are many opportunities for students to engage in repeated information on fall. This repetition encourages true understanding of the season of fall. Finally, many of the fall activities include more than one version, suggestions for differentiation and options for presentation.

The digital activities were created using google slides and can be used with google classroom.

Each digital activity comes in 2 versions. The original plus one with color-coding to add more visual support for students who need the extra help. There is also a link to a movie version of both books included in the unit that students can watch online.

There are directions on how to access the digital activities and movie in a pdf included in this unit. There are also suggestions on the easiest way to assign the appropriate activities to each student.

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!! Even when teaching about the season of fall, 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.
