Number Line Unit for Special Education with digital activities



Total Pages 72 pages and 44 google slides
Teaching Duration 2 Weeks



Number Line Unit contains 70 pages and 44 google slides specifically designed for students with special learning needs, especially autism. This unit on number lines addresses how to read a number line in a simplified but rigorous way for students with diverse learning needs to make meaningful and authentic connections to the material. There are many opportunities for students to engage in repeated information on reading number lines. This repetition encourages a true understanding of how to read a number line. Finally, many of the number line activities include more than one version, suggestions for differentiation, and options for presentation.

*****This unit now includes digital versions of the printable activities. There are 44 google slides and a movie version of both books.

See Preview for a more detailed look.


Number Line Unit Includes:

  • 2 books (includes movie version)
  • 10 worksheets recording position on number line (includes digital version)
  • 10 worksheets placing objects on a number line (includes digital version)

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. For example, spend one week on each book. 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.

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.
