Having both taught in self-contained special education classrooms, Michaela and I have experienced the difficulties and frustrations of finding appropriate resources to meet the needs of our students.
The mission behind Made For Me Literacy is to provide teachers with engaging, comprehensive reading units that were designed with special learners in mind. These monthly-themed units span various subject areas, including basic reading, writing, math, science, and fine motor skills.
Differentiation is often a time consuming and tedious process. But not anymore! Many activities included in the Made For Me Literacy curriculum provide two or three levels of difficulty. Meeting the needs of all your students is easy with the differentiation already done for you.
Included in this FREE mini unit:
Task Box/File Folders
Increase independence and enhance basic math and literacy skills with these tasks that can prepped as task boxes OR file folders - your choice! This mini freebie unit contains 2 math and 2 ELA tasks, each with two levels of difficulty.
Cut and Paste Activities
These differentiated cut-and-paste activities are a great way to assess student knowledge, promote independence, and practice fine motor scissor skills.
Easy Art Activities and Anchor Chart
The art activities includes easy print pages so you can print pieces directly on construction paper (so students can cut the shapes out), and step by step real picture directions for students to follow independently or as a whole group activity.
Story Time Comprehension Activities
