If You Take a Mouse to the Movies by Laura Numeroff is the focus of this literacy unit for students with autism and special learning needs. This 60+ page unit has various activities to accompany Laura Numeroff's book, If You Take a Mouse to the Movies. The materials are designed to allow students with multiple levels of learning to access and engage in lessons learned through reading If You Take a Mouse to the Movies. There are many opportunities for students to engage in repeated information on the travels of this mouse and his friend while going to the movies on a snowy day. This repetition encourages deeper engagement of the book. Finally, many of the If You Take a Mouse to the Movies activities include more than one version, suggestions for differentiation and options for presentation.

***NEW: I made digital versions of all the activities in this unit plus a video of the book read aloud. Perfect for distance learning or social distancing in the classroom.

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. .
