Tasks Galore – Literature-Based Thematic Units, the fifth book in the popular resource series for parents, teachers, and therapists, integrates instruction across core curriculum areas by utilizing multisensory learning.
Using the storybook, I’m Hungry, I’m Hungry, What Shall I Do?, as a guide for creating literature-based thematic units, the authors have designed hands-on activities for use with young learners and students with special needs.

Tasks illustrate how to make learning more meaningful by:
• Using organizational strategies and visual cues
• Connecting themes to everyday experiences
• Adapting skills for 21st century learning
