PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This unit is an overview of 3 main holidays in December:

Special attention is made to make this material accessible and engaging to our students with significant learning disabilities. Suggestions for differentiation and various versions are included so all students can participate at their learning level.

• 23 page story about the holidays in pdf format

• 3 circle maps highlighting the key points about each holiday

• 3 Venn diagrams comparing and contrasting the 3 holidays
→ 2 different levels included for each diagram

• 3 cooking activities unique to each holiday. 2 recipes come with 2 versions depending on the learning level of your students
→ Beene Cakes
→ Christmas cookies
→ Hanukkah Honey Muffins

*****************************************************************************
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. 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.

If you like this unit, consider adding my Christmas Unit that has another 92 pages of material.
