These Bathe the Dog sentence sequencing activities are perfect for preschool and kindergarten kiddos. Practice handwriting and sequencing at the same time!
Add these sequencing activities to your literacy centers, and your kids will work on handwriting, sequencing, storytelling, and coloring in one amazing activity!
The best thing about these free preschool printables is that they double as an educational activity. Your kids will have so much fun completing them, they won’t even realize they’re learning.
Bathe the Dog Sentence Sequencing
To start, print out the sentence sequencing pages on regular printer paper. You can staple them together to make a book, or you can give your child one page at a time.
If you’d like to make these pages reusable, slip each one in a dry-erase pocket (I love these!) and let your kids use dry erase markers to write the sentences.
This pack contains two sets of sequencing activities. One is color and the other black and white. Choose which one works best for your homeschool or classroom needs.
These “Bathe the Dog” story sequencing activities allow kids to focus on each step of the task separately. There are several different ways you can present and use them.
For younger children, I would present the pages in order from beginning to end. Older children should be able to put a jumbled stack of pages in sequential order on their own. They should be able to do this by looking at the pictures even if they can’t yet read the sentences.
To use the pages, have kids read the first sentence on each page. If your kids aren’t reading yet, read the sentence to them pointing to each word so they can follow along.
Next, have kids trace the second sentence. This will help them practice proper letter formation as well as tracking from left to right.
Finally, if your kids are ready, have them copy the sentence onto the blank lines at the bottom of the page. This is a great way to help them develop hand-eye coordination as they look at the sentence at the top of the page and copy it to the bottom.
Once all of the pages are complete, help your child bind them into a book. Then, have them “read” the book to friends and family.
