Fall Unit for Special Education with print and digital activities


This Fall Unit contains over 100 pages and 13 google slides of material specifically designed for students with special learning needs, especially autism. 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 a 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.

***This unit now includes digital versions of the activities. There are 13 google slides and a movie version of the book.

  • 7 day lesson plan
  • 20 page book on fall with photos (includes movie version)
  • Voice recorded power point show version of book
  • Vocabulary board
  • Circle map (includes digital version)
  • 2 sorting activities (includes digital version)
  • Counting and coloring activity (includes digital version)
  • Writing prompt (includes digital version)

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.
