Use Free Printable Cartoon Coloring Pages to Teach Reading, Writing

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opened May 2, 2014 in U.S. movie theaters. Special needs students, like all kids, typically love superheroes. You can use cartoons, TV and movies to teach concepts. Print off coloring pages of their favorite characters. Use the link provided to get Spider-Man, other DC and Marvel superheroes, Barbie, Disney, PBS, Looney Tunes and more. Print small versions that will fit on index cards. Have kids color and glue to index cards (craft plus learning game--sweet!)

Then brainstorm lists of associated words and write on your word wall. For Spider-Man, you might use: spider, arachnid, insect, bug, super, hero, fly, web, city, save, science, villain, spin, swing, octopus, mask, sky, night. (Don't laugh--I'm not up on Spiderman words!). Then have students write words on their flashcards. This helps them learn to read, write and spell in fun, hands-on ways. Extend lesson by having kids color full-size coloring pages, write Spiderman stories and collate into classroom books. For lower-functioning populations this might be a group project.
