Download this set of fun summer sequencing cards that include puzzles, a sequencing mat, and story telling page for 3 step sequencing cards.
These 3 step sequencing cards feature ten summer activities which include making s’mores, melting ice cubes, eating popsicles, and more. They’re perfect for identifying the order in which events occur. This is a skill that is important for storytelling and ordering events.
These sequence cards are a fun way to practice sequencing with a little bit of writing thrown in for those kids who are ready for it.
Summer Sequencing Cards
This set of sequencing activities offers three different types of activities. These can be used in literacy centers, as a whole group activity, and independently.
First, you’ll find a set of 3 part sequencing puzzles. Print the pages on cardstock and laminate them for durability. This will help keep the activity intact so it can be used over and over again.
Cut the puzzles apart so that you have three pieces for each one. Each puzzle piece is labeled so kids can keep them together.
Spread out the pieces, and have kids assemble each puzzle in the order the events would happen.
To make this a self-correcting activity, you can put small stickers on the back of each puzzle so that each puzzle has matching stickers. You could also number the back of each puzzle piece so that kids can flip them over and check the order to see if they them in the correct order.
Next, you’ll find a summer sequencing mat and 30 sequencing cards. Again, print out the pages and laminate them for durability. I put small velcro dots on each of the three spaces on the mat and on the back of the sequencing cards.
Have children choose a set of cards and put them in the proper order. Once the cards are on the mat in the proper order, have them orally tell you story about the pictures.
Last, you’ll find a story telling page. Kids can choose their favorite set of sequencing cards. Put them in order on the story telling page. Then, have them write or dictate a sentence about each picture thus creating a story.
You could copy one page for each student or laminate the storytelling page to use as a center activity. If you laminate the page, use velcro dots to order the cards and then use a dry erase marker to write the sentences.
This set of summer sequencing cards offers three different activities for your preschoolers to do. Low-prep activities make set up quick and easy so you can basically just print, cut, and go.
