PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This Polar Express unit was developed for students with autism and special learning needs. There are a lot of Polar Express products out there. This one is specifically made to be engaging and help students make personal and authentic connections to the content of the story. The Polar Express activities allow for a lot of repetition of the material and many chances for students to become familiar with the material in this story. There is a brief non-fiction study on the Arctic that helps students better understand the setting of the story. Finally, there is a social story on when things get lost and what to do when that happens.

See Preview for a detailed look at the contents.

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. .
