Recently a friend of mine told me that her daughter was having trouble with sequencing and I started to think of what activities would help her. Here are some ideas that I thought about.
1. Get old picture books from yard sales and tear out 3 pages showing the beginning, the middle, and the end of the story. Have the person put them in order. Then slowly increase the number of pages for sequencing.
2. Have the person tell you a what they did yesterday. Write them on sentence strips. Have the person draw a picture of each sentence on separate pieces of paper. Mix up the stentences strips and have the person put these in order.
3. Write a 5 sentence story with each sentence on a sentence strip. Have the person draw a picture for each sentence on separate pieces of paper. Mix up the pictures and have them put the pictures in order. Then have them put the sentences beside each picture. Next mix up the sentences and have them put them in order.
4. Write an easy recipe on sentence strips. Have the person draw a picture for each step. Mix up the pictures and have the person put them in order. Then mix up the sentence strips and put them in order.
5. Have them think of something they like to do. First have them write down the steps and then practice actually doing each step. Let them add anything they forgot. Then teach someone else to do it either in person or by making a video demonstrating how to do it.
What suggestions do you have for teaching sequencing? Please share.
