If You Give a Moose a Muffin by Laura Numeroff is the focus of this read aloud for students in special education and is packed with activities to keep students engaged for an entire week.


There are 6 activities to accompany 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 while reading this book aloud.


There are many opportunities for students to engage in repeated information on the travels of this pancake-loving pig and her friend. 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 is also a picture recipe for making muffins together as a class and 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 video of the book read aloud.

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.
