Itsy Bitsy Spider Sequencing
Sequencing activities are important in early childhood. They help little ones learn to make order of the things they encounter in their every day lives.
Sequencing is also an important skill to have as children begin to read. When they can put story parts in order, they demonstrate comprehension and logical progression.
One easy place to start story sequencing is with nursery rhymes. And, The Itsy Bitsy Spider is a fun one to use throughout the year. It’s perfect in spring when you’re talking about bugs or weather/rain. But, it works well in October when you talk about spiders as Halloween approaches.
This no-prep activity is ready for you to print and go! Print the pages, cut them out, and sequence the rhyme. It’s as easy as that!
To start, read the rhyme to your preschooler. Then, have them recite the rhyme with you. If you want, you can also teach them the hand motions that go with the rhyme.
Once they’re familiar with the rhythm and rhyme, have them assemble the sequencing activity. They’ll glue the flap book to the bottom of the background page and cut the flaps.
Then, as you recite the rhyme together one more time, they’ll glue the sequencing cards under the appropriate flap.
Finally, have them retell the rhyme using the sequencing cards they just glued down. That’s it! They’re all done!
Your preschoolers will love reciting this rhyme over and over again as they lift the flaps on their sequencing book.
