The BFG by Roald Dahl 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 228 page unit on the novel The BFG 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 novel unit is also part of my Roald Dahl bundle that includes all 4 of my novel units by this author. Save 20% and check it out by clicking below: Roald Dahl BUNDLE

This unit has various activities to accompany Roald Dahl's book, The BFG. 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 Sophie and the BFG as they try to save everyone from being eaten by the other giants. This repetition encourages deeper engagement of the book. Finally, many of The BFG activities include more than one version, suggestions for differentiation, and options for presentation. There are one or more activities (34 different activities!!) to go with each chapter as your students stay engaged while you read this novel aloud.

***This novel unit now has 3-5 comprehension questions for each chapter. Each question has 3 picture answer choices. An answer key is included.

See preview for the table of contents and a detailed look at what is included,


The BFG Unit Includes:

  • 174 pages of activities in 2 separate files, one is color and one in BW
  • Table of Contents
  • Suggestions for Use and Suggestions for Differentiation for activities
  • 34 activities (1 or more for each chapter plus some bonus activities)
  • 3-5 comprehension questions for each chapter


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.
