Writing Prompts A-Z for Special Education

Total Pages: 116
File Size: 4 MB



This product contains 26 different writing prompts (one for each letter of the alphabet) in color and BW. They were specifically developed for students with autism and significant learning challenges who are in elementary school, and may be either non-readers or emerging readers. Having students create their own writing product can be super challenging when teaching students with special learning needs. This method allows them to create their own story using the structure provided and some appropriate pictures to choose from. In addition, there are teacher suggestions on how to make the most of this activity included.

For even more tips on teaching students to write who truly struggle with reading, go to my blog post, Writing Prompts for Students who Cannot Read. There is even a FREE prompt you can get there to see if this will work for your students.

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.
