JUNE 2015: BLACK AND WHITE VERSIONS ADDED TO ACTIVITIES.

This unit was specifically designed for students with significant disabilities to accompany the book: I’m the Biggest Thing in the Ocean by Kevin Sherry. There are various activities with suggestions for differentiation and options for presentation to keep students actively engaged and participating. This would be a great companion to an ocean life unit!!

*****This unit now includes digital versions of almost all the activities. There are 58 google slides (includes a differentiated set), a movie of the book read aloud, and a movie on giant squid.

Please see preview for more detailed samples of 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.

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.
