Spring Unit for Special Education PRINT and DIGITAL


Total Pages 87 pages plus 32 google slides
Answer Key Included
Teaching Duration 2 Weeks


Spring Unit contains over 85 pages and 32 google slides of material specifically designed for students with special learning needs, especially autism. This unit on spring addresses the characteristics of spring and other seasons in a simplified but rigorous way for students with diverse learning needs to make meaningful and authentic connections to the material whether learning about spring, summer, fall, or winter. There are many opportunities for students to engage in repeated information on spring and the other seasons. This repetition encourages a true understanding of spring. Finally, many of the spring activities include more than one version, suggestions for differentiation, and options for presentation.

This unit contains digital activities. There are 32 slides (includes a differentiated set) that cover various skills.

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.
