Answer Key Included
Teaching Duration 1 Week


Heebie-Jeebie Jamboree by Mary Ann Fraser is the focus of this literacy unit for students with autism and special learning needs. This unit has various activities to accompany Fraser’s book Heebie-Jeebie Jamboree.


The materials are designed to allow students with multiple levels of learning to access and engage in lessons learned through reading Heebie-Jeebie Jamboree.


There are many opportunities for students to engage in repeated information as they listen to a story about Sam and Daphne who visit a fair that is not your normal fall festival.


*****This unit includes 12 google slides and a version of the book read aloud. Perfect for an independent learning center. The slides are separated into 2 files. One is regular and one is differentiated with color for more support.

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.
