Total Pages 72 pages plus 28 google slides
Answer Key Included
Teaching Duration 1 Week


1:1 Correspondence Unit contains 70 pages and 28 google slides of material specifically designed for students with special learning needs, especially autism. This unit on 1:1 correspondence addresses set size and finding matching sets 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 practice on 1:1 correspondence. This repetition encourages true understanding of set size and 1:1 correspondence. Finally, many of the activities include more than one version, suggestions for differentiation and options for presentation.

*****This unit contains digital versions of the activities as well. There are 28 google slides (including a differentiated set) and movie versions of the books.

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!! 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.
