Product Description
Holes by Louis Sachar is the focus of 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 153 page unit on the novel Holes 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 Louis Sachar's book, Holes. 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 the adventures of the Stanley and the other boys at Camp Green Lake. This repetition encourages deeper engagement of the book. Finally, many of the Holes activities include more than one version, suggestions for differentiation and options for presentation. There is an activity (55 different 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,

Holes Unit Includes:
• 153 pages of activities to accompany Holes
• Table of Contents
• Suggestions for Use and Suggestions for Differentiation for activities
• 55 activities (1 for each chapter plus some bonus activities)

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.
