If You Give a Moose a Muffin by Laura Numeroff is the focus of this literacy unit for students with autism and special learning needs. This 70+ page plus 16 google slide unit has various activities to accompany Laura Numeroff’s book, If You Give a Moose a Muffin. The materials are designed to allow students with multiple levels of learning to access and engage in lessons learned through reading If You Give a Moose a Muffin. There are many opportunities for students to engage in repeated information on the travels of the moose and his friend on this chilly fall day. This repetition encourages deeper engagement of the book. Finally, many of the If You Give a Moose a Muffin activities include more than one version, suggestions for differentiation, and options for presentation. There is also a picture recipe for making muffins together as a class as well as a 10-page social story on the importance of using good manners.

*****This unit now includes digital versions of the activities. There are 16 google slides and a movie version of the book read aloud and the social story.

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.

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. Plus, it just means a lot to me.
