Mary Poppins by P.L. Travers 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 120 page unit on the novel Mary Poppins is designed for students who have significant 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 worth teaching.


This unit has various activities to accompany P.L. Travers, Mary Poppins. 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 crazy adventures of Mary Poppins, Jane, and Michael. This repetition encourages deeper engagement of the book. Finally, many of the Mary Poppins activities include more than one version, suggestions for differentiation, and options for presentation. There is an activity (22 different activities!!) to go with each chapter as your students stay engaged while you read this novel aloud.

There are 2 complete files to go with this unit. One is in color and one is in BW.

***There are 3 comprehension questions for most chapters. Each question has 3 picture choices for answers. There is an answer key included.

***BRAND NEW!!! This novel unit now has each chapter read aloud on video. That way your students can listen and watch someone else read each chapter!!

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 purchases 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.
