Sequencing Is Important
Sequencing is an important early learning skill for kindergartners. It’s important that kids learn to break events and tasks down and put them in order from first to last.
Sequencing events helps us to talk about the past and tell stories in a logical way. Understanding sequencing will help your kindergartners build reading comprehension skills.
It’s also important to be able to order events correctly in order to perform certain multi-step tasks that require us to follow instructions in a specific order. So, sequencing is an important skill your kindergartners will use for their entire lives.
Use these easy Thanksgiving worksheets for kindergarten to help your kids practice these important skills while having fun at home or in the classroom this November.
How To Teach Sequencing
When you begin teaching your kindergartners how to order events, begin by teaching them to notice the first and last steps or events. This Thanksgiving worksheet for kindergartners will help you focus on this important sequencing skill because each box is labeled with ordinal numbers to make it easier for your kindergartners to arrange the pictures in the proper order.
You can help your kindergartners begin to understand this sequencing task by talking about what happened first and what happened last. Tell your kindergarteners a story about how to cook a turkey using this adorable Thanksgiving sequencing printable. Then, have them tell the story back to you as they order the images in this Thanksgiving worksheet.
The first thing you need to do is help the child understand when we sequence events one thing needs to come first and another comes last. We start then by just sequencing two steps together.
You can use the pictures from my free downloadable activity above or make your own pictures. You’ll need two pictures that represent before and after. This could be things like someone holding an object and then it falling or someone standing and then having fallen on the ground.
