The House in the Night by Susan Marie Swanson is the focus of this literacy unit for students with autism and special learning needs. This book was the Caldecott Medal Winner in 2009. This 30 page unit on The House in the Night is designed for students who have significant disabilities and special learning needs. I was always reading 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.

This is a story about what happens in the night and uses the format of cumulative patterns. The activities mainly focus on what happens in the nighttime and getting ready for bed.

****There are digital versions of the activities included. There are 12 google slides including a differentiated set and a movie of the book read aloud. SEE THE VIDEO PREVIEW FOR A WALK-THROUGH OF THE SLIDES.

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. 

I am currently developing more units, and any feedback I get helps me make improvements in the future.
