Charlotte's Web by E.B. White is the focus of this literacy unit developed for students with autism and other special learning needs. Have you ever wanted to read a novel to your special ed students but thought, there is no way they will sit and listen? Persevere, it is worth it!! This 69 page unit on the novel Charlotte's Web 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 E.B. White’s book, Charlotte's Web. 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 to Wilbur, Charlotte, and all the other farm animals. This repetition encourages deeper engagement of the book. Finally, many of the Charlotte Web's activities include more than one version, suggestions for differentiation and options for presentation. There is an activity 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,

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. Remember, you will gain credit toward future purchase on tpt as you leave more and more feedback!!

I am currently developing more units, and any feedback I get helps me make improvements in the future. Plus, it just means a lot to me.

I have lots of other literacy units, just look at the tab on the left in my store.
