If You Give a Pig a Pancake Sequencing

This Laura Numberoff preschool activity will bring the story to life and give kids the chance to practice retelling stories while also getting creative with coloring activities.

Read through the book with them and discuss what happens in each scene. Ask your students questions about how one thing leads to another throughout the book and explain that this is an example of sequencing.

Then, have your students cut out the hat and illustrations.

If you chose the black and white version, encourage them to color in the pictures before gluing or taping everything together to create their sequencing hats.

As they’re completing the activity, ask them questions about what happens in each scene and help them put their sequencing hats together.

Once they’re finished, have your students practice retelling the story by placing the illustrations in order on their hats. This is a great way to reinforce the concept of sequencing!
