Understanding Sequencing

Sequencing is the skill of arranging objects, actions, or ideas in a specific order, typically based on a set of rules or guidelines.

In the context of early education, sequencing tasks often involve arranging events from a story or steps in a process in the correct order.

This kind of task helps children develop logical thinking skills, enhances their understanding of cause-and-effect relationships, and boosts their ability to predict what might happen next.

Young readers will have a blast with this Snowmen at Night sequencing activity. With four versions of the sequencing cards, it's easy to differentiate for all learning levels. 

Snowmen at Night Sequencing 

To embark on this magical journey with the “Snowmen at Night,” you will need the following materials:

  • Our sequencing pages
  • A clear workspace for arranging the cards

First, enjoy a reading session with your child. As you flip through the pages of the “Snowmen at Night” book, encourage your child to pay close attention to the events that unfold in the storyline.

Upon finishing the book, introduce the sequencing cards. Each card depicts a key event from the book. Ask your child to recall the events in the order they occurred in the story and arrange the cards accordingly. 

Prompt your child to discuss why they placed the cards in a particular sequence. This encourages them to think critically about the story’s progression and the cause-and-effect relationships between different events.

Finally, revisit the book and compare the arranged sequence to the story. This not only verifies their understanding but also reinforces the sequence of events in the story.

Remember, the goal of this activity is to develop sequencing skills while ensuring a fun and engaging experience. Don’t forget to praise their effort and encourage repeat attempts for continuous learning and improvement.

NOTE: There are four different sets of sequencing discs included in this pack. This allows students to work at their own level.  One page of discs is just images while one has action words on each disc. The other two focus on ordinal numbers.
