Introduce the concept of sequencing in Pre-K by making the sequence all about them. Children can sequence their morning routine — what they do before they get to school — to make the activity more meaningful and help them understand the concept.
Using the Daily Routine Sequencing Cards
Full Color Photo Set
Use the full color photo set with a whole group or small group. Download the sequencing cards at the link below, and print, cut out, and laminate them. Make sure the children understand what each picture represents.
Have the children use these cards to sequence their morning routine. After they wake up, what do they do first? Eat breakfast or wash their face? Each child’s sequence will be slightly different, according to their family’s morning routine.
This set has 8 sequencing cards. Older children should be able to sequence all 8 cards, but you may want to limit the cards to 4 for younger children.
You can also place this set in a learning center for children to use during Center Time.
Black and White Set
This set can by copied in order to provide each child in a small group with their own set of cards. Use the full color set first, then have children manipulate their own set of cards.
Make sure children understand what each picture represents.
This printable sequencing set comes with 8 picture cards to sequencing as well as a cut and paste page. There is one page that has only 3 pictures to sequence and another that has 4 pictures to sequence.
