George’s Marvelous Medicine by Roald Dahl is the focus of this novel 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 130 page unit on the novel George’s Marvelous Medicine is designed for students who have significant 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 worthwhile teaching.

 

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS NOVEL STUDY DOES NOT INCLUDE AN ADAPTED VERSION OF THE BOOK. YOU WILL NEED YOUR OWN COPY OF THE NOVEL TO READ ALOUD. I USED THE UNABRIDGED VERSION, BUT THE ACTIVITIES WILL WORK WITH ANY ADAPTED VERSION YOU MAY HAVE.

 

This unit has various activities to accompany Dahl’s book, George’s Marvelous Medicine. 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 as they listen to the story about how one boy makes up a marvelous medicine in an attempt to get rid of his mean grandmother. This repetition encourages deeper engagement of the book. Finally, many of the activities include more than one version, suggestions for differentiation, and options for presentation. There are 17 different activities to keep students engaged while you read this novel aloud.

 

There are 2 complete files to go with this unit. One is in color and one is in BW.

 

This unit has 5 multiple choice comprehension questions for every chapter. Each question has 3 picture answer choices. An answer key is included.

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.
