Which comes first? Which comes last? Provide students with the opportunity to illustrate the sequence of a story.
Count the number of students present in your class today. In a recycled box, place the same number of index cards as students. On each card, write either the digit 1, 2, 3, or 4. If possible, have the same number of cards and numbers as students (example: four 1s; four 2s; four 3s; four 4s).
Read students a story about seasons such as The Seasons of Arnold's Apple Tree by Gail Gibbons. As you read the story, share the illustrations with students and allow time for children to discuss what is happening as the story moves along.
After concluding the discussion about the story, ask students to select cards from the recycled box that have either the number 1, 2, 3, or 4 on the card.
Provide each student with a sheet of Crayola® Construction Paper and Crayola Construction Paper Crayons. Have students create their interpretation of the first, second, third, or fourth scene from the story, depending upon what card number each selected from the recycled box.
How well did they do? Have all the students with the 1-card stand and talk about their scenes. Next, have all the 2-card students stand and talk about their artwork. Continue this until all students have had an opportunity to share their artwork. Did they all get it right?
Repeat the activity with another story to continue to assist students with developing sequencing skills.
