Pax by Sara Pennypacker is the focus of this novel unit for students with autism and special learning needs. Have you ever wanted to read a novel to your special education students but thought, there is no way they will sit and listen? Persevere, it is worth it!! This 200+ page unit on the novel Pax is designed for students who have significant disabilities and special learning needs. I was always reading a novel to my students, regardless of their learning level. The lesson of learning to sit while someone is talking is an invaluable skill that is worthwhile teaching.

 

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS NOVEL UNIT IS FOR STUDENTS WITH SIGNIFICANT DISABILITIES AND ARE EITHER EMERGING OR NON-READERS AND DOES NOT INCLUDE THE NOVEL NOR AN ADAPTED VERSION. YOU WILL NEED YOUR OWN COPY OF THE BOOK.

 

This unit has various activities to accompany Sarah Pennypackers’s book, Pax. The materials were designed to allow students with multiple levels of learning to access and engage in lessons learned through listening to this novel. There are many opportunities for students to engage in repeated information as they listen to this story about a boy determined to find his way back to his fox, Pax. This repetition encourages deeper engagement of the book. Finally, many of the activities include more than one version, suggestions for differentiation, and options for presentation. There are 1 or more activities (36 different activities!!) to go with each chapter as your students stay engaged while you read this novel aloud.

 

There are 2 complete files to go with this unit. One is in color and one is in BW.

 

This unit has 5 multiple choice comprehension questions for every chapter. Each question has 3 picture answer choices. An answer key is included.

 

See preview for the table of contents and a detailed look at what is included.

There are so many benefits to reading out loud to your students. You will teach them an invaluable skill of learning to sit still while someone else is talking. Your parents will also LOVE you for not only teaching them this skill of sitting but also for exposing them to age-appropriate material. Plus, you never know which students you will touch with each story you read.

 

As always please take a moment to leave feedback or post any questions you may have.
