    Thematic Group and Picture Book Unit Lesson Plans


    Are you looking for thematic activities to supplement your academic instruction or help students better access grade-level curriculum? Do you love teaching literacy using picture books but have students who are nonreaders or reading significantly below grade level? This bundle of thematic unit activities and picture book supports is the perfect classroom addition to meet the diverse needs of your students!

    Who is it for?

    • Preschool or Elementary special education classrooms
    • Students with communication and comprehension IEP goals
    • Non-readers


    • teacher-friendly: all activities include a color and black & white version, answer key, set-up tips, ways to implement during group, 1:1, and independent work times, and differentiation tips for accommodating or extending learning for every activity (see preview for details).
    • engaging: hands-on activities encourage interaction and communication
    • picture-supported: using PCS from Mayer Johnson (used with permission)
    • predictable: due to similar formatting across book units
    • ready-to-use: most activities simply need printed but can be laminated or made into velcro boards for increased durability and interaction
    • tested: I have developed and used these activities over many years of teaching in a special education classroom
