Being able to sequence is an important skill for math and reading. Discover hands-on sequencing activities for preschoolers that are perfect for building a strong foundation.
Sequencing is a life skill, and it’s a skill that is easy to overlook on your milestones checklist. However, being able to determine “what comes next” or “what to do first” is important for everyday things like getting dressed and telling someone about the day.
I’ve shared many printable sequencing cards here, but today we’re going to focus on hands-on activities!
Many people use predictable stories to teach story sequencing to young learners. Others use sequencing cards like the ones I’ve shared previously here on the blog.
But, the activities below are designed to help your preschoolers practice sequencing without the use of worksheets and printables. All of the activities below are hands-on so kids get a real feel for creating sequences, patterns, and order.
I love these painted stones, and your kids are going to love this superhero-inspired patterning and sequencing activity.
Patterns are all around us, and this patterning math activity helps little ones learn to recognize, copy, and repeat them.
Make some months of the year sequencing sticks, and then use them to work on a number of sequencing activities including seasons, order of the months, and more.
