File Size: 2 MB



The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis is the focus 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 109 page unit on the novel The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe is designed for students who have 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.


This unit has various activities to accompany C.S. Lewis’s book, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. 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 on what happens as 4 children travel through a wardrobe to the magical land of Narnia. This repetition encourages deeper engagement of the book. Finally, many of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe activities include more than one version, suggestions for differentiation and options for presentation. There are one or more activities to go with each chapter as your students stay engaged while you read this novel aloud.

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


Unit Includes:

• 109 pages of activities to accompany The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe
• Table of Contents

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.
