My Daddy Snores Literacy Unit for Special Education

Total Pages: 56 pages and 18 google slides
File Size: 3 MB




This unit has over 60 pages of material and 18 google slides specifically designed for students with significant disabilities. The activities have a lot of visual support and there are suggestions for differentiation as well as options for use. The goal is to make this material engaging and accessible to as many different learning styles and levels as possible.

****This unit now has digital versions of the printable activities. There are now 18 google slides (including a differentiated set), and movies of the book and social story read aloud.

See preview for a 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.

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.
