If You Give a Pig a Pancake by Laura Numeroff is the focus of this literacy unit for students with autism and special learning needs. This 80+ page unit has various activities to accompany Laura Numeroff’s book If You Give a Pig a Pancake. 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 Pig a Pancake. 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 If You Give a Pig a Pancake activities include more than one version, suggestions for differentiation, and options for presentation. There is also a 16-page social story on what to remember when borrowing and lending items as well as making polite requests. There is also a picture recipe for making pancakes as a class.

****This unit now includes digital versions of the activities. There are 22 google slides and a video of the book read aloud.

See Preview for a more detailed look at the contents.

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 learning about a specific letter, we can ask students questions that will push them to think more deeply than before.
