If You Take a Mouse to School by Laura Numeroff is the focus of this literacy unit for students with autism and special learning needs. This 60-page unit has various activities to accompany Laura Numeroff’s book If You Take a Mouse to School. The materials are designed to allow students with multiple levels of learning to access and engage in lessons learned through reading If You Take a Mouse to School. There are many opportunities for students to engage in repeated information on the travels of the mouse and his friend while spending a day at school. This repetition encourages deeper engagement of the book. Finally, many of the If You Take a Mouse to School activities include more than one version, suggestions for differentiation, and options for presentation. There is also an 18-page social story perfect for back to school.

***Now includes digital versions of the activities in this unit. There are now 32 google slides and the story being read aloud from youtube.

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 mouse going to school, we can ask students questions that 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.
