Young readers will have a blast with this Snowmen at Night sequencing activity.
With four versions of the story sequencing cards, it’s easy to differentiate for all learning levels.
Being able to sequence stories helps kids begin to organize information efficiently.
Story sequencing helps them recognize the structure of a story, and it helps you gauge their understanding of the story you’ve read or told.
Snowmen at Night is a fun story in which a young child wonders what happened to his snowman overnight.
Follow a group of snowmen as they play games at night when no one is watching.
Snowmen at Night Sequencing
Ask your preschoolers what they think snowmen do while they (the kids) are asleep at night.
Do they stand still in the yard, or do they get together with other snowmen from the neighborhood to have fun?
Read Snowmen at Night with your preschoolers. Be sure to show them the pictures as you read so they can follow the activities of a group of silly snowmen.
Afterward, show them the sequencing cards. See if they can put the cards in order as you read the story through one more time.
This low-prep activity is quite easy to prepare. Just print the pages, cut out the sequencing cards, and you’re all set.
You could let the students cut out the story discs, if you’d like. This will help them build the fine motor muscles in their hands while working on scissor skills.
Then, have them glue the discs on the sequencing page in the correct order. 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. If your kids are ready for these discs, you can choose from words or numbers.
