Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum is the focus of this literacy 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 200+ page unit on the novel Wizard of Oz 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 worth teaching.


This unit has various activities to accompany Frank Baum’s book, Wizard of Oz. 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 what happens to Dorothy and her friends. This repetition encourages deeper engagement of the book. Finally, many of the Wizard of Oz activities include more than one version, suggestions for differentiation, and options for presentation. There are one or more activities to go with each chapter (36 total activities) 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 5 comprehension questions for every 2 chapters. Each question has 3 picture choices for answers. There is an answer key included.

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


Wizard of Oz Unit Includes:

  • 175 pages of activities to accompany Wizard of Oz
  • Table of Contents
  • Suggestions for Use and Suggestions for Differentiation for activities
  • 36 activities (1 or more for every chapter)
  • 5 comprehension questions for every 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.
